    how to simplify buddhism for beginners and advance participants

    Become more aware of the law of cause & effect

    Karma works in mysterious ways (says one vibrating karmic bundle of energy flux to the other :) ) For every action there's a reaction."Cause >Condition>Effect

    Karma's what brought us to the Dharma ...Karma will either keep us practising the Dharma or repel us ... ... Seek (the Dharma) and you will find..."Nothing Special" just practical down to earth advice which if taken onboard will greatly improve the karmic patterns that govern one quality of life and the lives of those who one interacts with...

    It won't happen overnight...but it will happen :).

  • Re: Just for fun: the random, useless announcements thread!

    This is what first drew (pun intended) my attention (It connects to the last photo's bottom end)...For some reason it was the squiggly cloud, (low centre) that more or less said to peripheral eye consciousness "Hey look at me!"...

    It's amazing what one can see when one looks up...Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so they say :)

    Head in the clouds

    Last night's cloud formation as the sun was setting...(Puffs)

    And this afternoon's walk I saw the Mares' tail (which looked like brush strokes)

    @paulyso
    One of the biggest problems for many new (and not so new) practitioners is "remembering" to implement the Dharma, in other words put what been learnt/studied into everyday practice, especially when a crises hits...Hence why it is important to have a good grasp on mindfulness or "sati" as it is known in Pali ...

    The Pali term "sati" also means "to remember". ...go figure :)
