that: there is no independence.
this whole thing.
there can be no independence in samsara.
yet, you die alone; dependent origination.
there is causality.
the effort to combat causality,
and the only way to realize this,
is to live alone.
and that moment of death,
the calculus to independence,
is the only distribution (abstract time, abstract space),
to come to the realization,
i don’t need to prove that
i understand this anymore.
time to practice real buddhism
real buddhism, not in the recording.
real christianity, not in the records.
it’s right here,
this is where the practice is done.
be kind to your [ nearest ] neighbors
nearest is who is next to you right now,
this very moment,
driving a car,
person next to you,
in the passenger seats, in the driver’s seat,
the person in the car next to you.
this is real practice.
abolish the defilements.
this is where the practice happens,
right now, reading this.
these are just concepts.
this is real.
narrow the gap.
crossed to the other side.
this is real tathagatha.
gone really beyond.
stay the course.
the horn blows loud.
