Basic Resolutions

edited January 2 in Buddhism Basics

Happy New 2022

Breaking resolves is my link to Para-Nirvana in this very containment:

  • Resources, all of them. Make use of.
  • Be kind to the intentionally ignorant by ignoring them.
  • Be a better Buddha. Failing that Be a Battered Buddha … Yum!
  • Never go a day without practicing EVERYTHING.
  • Take advice.

Talking of advice. What are your chain breakers?

mmm … may have gone wrong again and it is only day 2 of 2022 :3

    More Kicking leaves, building snowmen, making daisy-chains, drinking hot chocolate.

    Just one, to notice when my personal experience takes my view into new areas of life, and to then let go of a few more preconceived notions and let my vision and understanding expand.

    Practice until prefect [sic] I likes it. I'll join.

    … talking of perfects, we already are. Well I never …

    More practices:

    • I was very pleased to do some clearing out, for example: Yoga and common sense has enabled me to do without a cushion. Buddha used the ground. With clean carpets. No need for yoga mat.
    • As I can still walk forward, without props and briskly, I do.
    • Due to Noble Silence, my mantraing is approaching a library whisper and may disappear pretty inevitably, up the Mind.
    • I am very pleased with yoga, earthing and balance. What's not to like.

    Nice thread.

    I'm aiming at being less impatient and in a rush. I need to be able to slow down and at the same time show up early. I seem to have a habit of trying to take too much on and then berating myself for not getting it all done.

    Oh well, it's a process.

    Wait till you become a bodhisattva … ;)

    • Save all Realms and Beings from ignorance, suffering and OMICRONY PANDEMIC HUM
    • Invent new mantras (still working on that)
    • Be Influencer (all realms and beings as mentioned)

    Much respect to Bodhi Spock… it’s getting confusing with so many actors having played the character.

  • I came
    I resolved
    I went to bed

    Well said @Lionduck

    Sufficient unto the day are the efforts (resolves) of the day.
