Bits and Pieces
THAT…scares me. I don’t want to go into that, the paranoia, discomfort something may be wrong…the fear of ultimate confusion and despair. That fear is a constant threat to us. THE FIVE SKANDHAS by Chogyam Trungpa
Bhagavan (Ramana Maharshi) …said, “no man takes seriously the fact of death. He may see death around him, but he still does not believe that he will die. He believes, or rather, feels, in some strange way, that death is not for him. Only when the body is threatened does he fall a victim to the fear of death. Every man believes himself to be eternal, and this is actually the truth. This truth asserts itself in spite of man’s ignorant belief that the body is the Self.” Here Lies The Heart by Mercedes D’Acosta
In fact, we see the drama of hunter and prey all over the world. Listen to the news! People are being killed all over the Earth every day, simply murdered in weird conflicts. Such a dreadful circumstance is just part of the unevolved state of Man. Everybody asks “Why are we doing this?” But nobody has come up with any reason to stop doing it!
