yes this is what everyone should start doing in meaning to talk about truth, realizing absolute facts in words that everyone know and see
but everyone prefer of course to sound intelligent or anything that would get back to him
they even invent how truth is artistic branch

to sound above absolutes is not that easy while only retarded could succeed, retarded that hate existence or forced to hate it

while everyone should be more aware that they are not free of conditions by talking about it out of it, there is a dimension outside of all gods that enjoy talking about everything in doing humans conscious days

so slave of god or gods out of relative dimensions in nothing fact or bastards without reference to space coming from nowhere as everywhere, ur choice doesnt matter u r still only full possession of ur most intimate matter right of being a quality existing

so about the point u were saying

yes this is the issue the total absence of plus, while plus is the truth of what any can become and any can be known and any can b invented and any can end absolutely right
plus can b conceived plus can b objective plus can b still constant while plus is before anything just free always

so since all is in same dimension mostly even all gods that are only relatively out of objective absolute nothing reality, but in absolute fact they are in our dimension space too
then only plus that anyone should do would allow decent true free realities, otherwise it is what we see, those relative knowledge of absolute eating it all

Suffering will eventually lead to the end of suffering. Only when you have had enough suffering will you seek the end of suffering. If you have not suffered enough you will continue to suffer.
Most humans believe that the human condition of suffering is compulsory. Even if they are not personally suffering they will find reasons to suffer, they believe that if someone somewhere is suffering then they are not allowed to be free of suffering. They always have an excuse why they cannot be free of suffering.
It is just that they have not realized that the only suffering they can feel is their own. If they could free themselves they would not beable to make another suffer. If you are suffering then you cannot help but make others suffer.

so,

how does a Buddhist appreciate their life, while one has it?

the middle path?

the ego experiences suffering, experiences joys - both impermanent

so suffering hardships is just as unfulfilling as experiencing happinesses?

the only permanent state - the goal of the Enlightened, being to 'achieve' non-existence??

Non existence cannot be achieved. However, it can be realized.
All states of mind are appearances so they 'appear to exist'. What they appear in and to does not exist. Can space exist? Space is, was and always will be.

Existence is what is seen and known, it is what appears to be happening. Without the seer and knower of existence, existence would have nowhere to appear.
The seer and knower of the illusion is not an illusion. It exists by not existing.

A buddha does not appriecate 'his' life. He knows he is life.
The problem with humans is they think they 'have' a life. This is the separation, they believe there is life and then there is them that has it. Life then is seen and felt as a burden. There is a belief that life has to be done and having to do life is hard.
Stop doing life and be. You are not a human 'doing', you are a human 'being'.
Being is being everything.

That. That is it in a nutshell.

It could almost go unnoticed. But it effectively distils the idea, at least for me, of meditation into a single statement..

Star again for you!!

Life is not suffering. It is the resistance to life that is suffering. Appearances appear and the human mind says 'no!!'. This 'no' is an argument with reality. Arguing with reality is suffering and insanity.
The human mind is insane.
The human mind always wants something that is not availabe, if it was available there would be no want. Try wanting what you have and not wanting what you don't have and you will be facing reality. Facing reality is seeing the truth and the truth shall set you free. Free from all delusion.
The mind produces illusions of past, future, good, bad, right and wrong, it will always do this to a certain extent. The illusions that it creates are not a problem unless they are believed, only then is it delusion.
You are the presence that all illusions appear to and all illusions are passing, however, what you are never passes.

You could describe it as non-self-existence. The basic implication of that is removal of divisive self-will, which removes resistance, which removes dukkha. All dukkha, or suffering, has a root cause. This is the 2nd noble truth: The Truth Of The Cause Of Dukkha. It having a cause implies that there is a way to completely eradicate it. If you remove the cause of dukkha, it cannot possibly arise. Thus you can conclude that there is such a thing as a complete end of all suffering. This the 3rd noble truth: The Truth Of The End Of Dukkha. Understanding this demonstrates the unparallelled optimism of Buddhism, if seen and understood from this perspective.

Thanks for the conditioning! no just joking there it is always good for a reminder of the truth to be served.



It is mind that makes us to be prisoners in the house of life, and it is mind that keeps us so." But what mind has done, that mind can undo.

Those were words that the Buddha offered on one occasion and to them I added this.
So all practices should aim at this goal, it doesn’t matter if the practice involves the body, or emotions all of these form part of the mind. All one needs to take in to account is the reason why one is practicing and the goal of such. The main process is that of unbinding the mind from its beliefs.
So may it be so.......... the choice is always there.

You will never experience 'things'.
You will only ever experience experiencing.

"YOU" will never experience anything because there is no you, just life expressing itself.

You are experiencing and experiencing is all there is.
You are 'knowing'.
Can you say you are not?
To be or not to be? That is the question.

A buddha doesnt have a life, but sees life as a raft.

not his life but life itself.

The buddha knows.
He is all seeing, all knowing and always present.

experience is not all there is, it is a part of all. There is a part that is knowing, but it is a part that is all. To be and not to be is the answer to that question.

Can you say you are not? Can you negate your being?

Buddha is pure awareness that is all seeing,knowing and present. Because this is so, there is no he that sees anything,that knows anything or that is always present.

I can say, there is nobody being. I have no need to negate or deny being itself.
