    The Great Suck of Emptiness ... both suck and suckless.

    If there is no self ... who be the sucker, and who the suckee? 8)

    The Buddha taught that Dukkha sucks but Sukkha doesn't! **

    LIFE SUCKS!




    ** More on the meaning of Dukkha/Sukkha here:

    Resistance is pain inducing. Acceptance of what is is relief and freedom. It is OK not to be OK is peace. Not OK to be not OK is knock out everytime.

    As my Grandmother lies very ill in hospital and I am unable to see her I was remended of Hongzhi's lovely death poem,


    Empty flowers of an illusory dream
    sixty seven years.
    A white bird vanishes in the mist
    Autumn waters touch the sky.

    A lot of things in life we attach to. A lot of these things cause suffering, such as being a miser, or ipods, or relationships that go wrong. Our practice is letting go of some of that stuff, and being interested in other stuff, like moons and sunsets, relationships that can never be wrong, or figuring out how to survive in the midst of a crisis.

    One version:

    Life is suffering.

    The origin of suffering is attachment.

    The cessation of suffering is attainable.

    The path to the cessation of suffering.

    Gassho (and take care)

    Just going to edit my last post. Moons and sunsets are too big. I should have said pebbles and foot steps.

    Losing stuff sucks. Some stuff more then others. ie. Losing an ipod is not such a big deal.

    Take Care
