    What we project we attract, and we project into the world what we carry inside.

    I'd say the latter is something we can do something about in our practice. Well, actually we can take a bath or shower to deal with the physical dirt and practice to clean ourselves mentally.

    Where there is light, there is darkness. Peace is in unity.

    Typical Hinayanist beloved Theravadin practitioner.
    I say, so what?

    No shit, no roses.
    No mud, no lotus - as @grackle mentions.

    Without a human body and mind, no enlightenment - and don't you forget it, you peace of shit! o:) I mean that in a Mahayana-wrathful-loving way of course ... [be in the naughty corner with my cesspool mind/body/speech if anyone needs me ...] :3

    it is nice to see everyone knows how shity they are and knows that shit/mud would help to get beautiful roses and lotus

    no shit, no roses
    no mud, no lotus

    it rhymes beautifully

    I want to push this a little further ...
    In Abrahamic mysticism (Judaism, Christainity, Islam) there is considered a perfection or flawless nature in both mud and lotus. In other words, the interdependence of the very positive, good, beautiful etc with Allahs hell.

    Ay caramba. It is a hard to fathom teaching.

    A phrase once came to me in meditation, "poepen en plassen is zijn plezier" meaning to poop and to piss is his pleasure. It struck me as one of those truths... a good shit or a pee when you've been holding it up for a while are among the great pleasures of life.

    It is easy to become obsessed with clean, to view clean exclusively as good. While dirt is merely one phase of the continuous transformation of all things on this Earth. What is now your shit was yesterday a healthy, delicious meal. Tomorrow it may be compost on the fields, and in a month it could be grass again.

    Without the shit in your bowels food would not be nourishing you today, it is part of the complete functioning body. Similarly with the arising of thoughts, part of the complete, functioning mind in its pre-enlightened state.

    Food for thought :p

    Today's garbage is tomorrow's manure to grow a garden.

    I once read a book entirely about human waste, what it did in the past, what it is now, how we treat it and what we should do differently. It was odd, but very interesting. LOL. Of course, too much shit will kill what it is meant to nourish as well. Our dog craps in the same place in the yard all winter, and when the green grass grows in the spring, that spot is dead for many weeks before it starts to grow grass again. But spread out appropriately, it is the lushest grass in the yard. Always middle way. Too much of a good thing in one spot might kill your roses. Spread it out, and you get more roses. I'm not sure what that really means :lol: Don't let your shit pile up, I guess.
