so
kewl!



I choose to examine the right-wrong game from the Zen perspective here. thought 3975 starts things out & then gets sucked right into it.
It is the silent things of the mind that I am interested in exposing - both my own and anyone else’s who cares to comment here.  I want to keep this item clear of the Middle East & election politics which right now are too juicy to see with a clear mind.

* There is a kind of Godfulness in this picture if you look at it with Zen Mind *
This reminds me of the block of wood moment - just me & the block of wood in one moment .

I start out looking at unity & then go on to polarity. Polarity is there deep underneath the RWG (& 4413).
With a view of the picture here I can experience the artistic
moment of Mother Nature all in harmony - things as they are & should be - a humming bird being nourished by the honey not so hidden by the radiance of the flower itself.
I use this thought experiment to get to the concept of unity - a natural zen moment.

Why shouldn't all moments be like this ?

Mark de LA says
What stimulates the thought "There is something wrong here ?"
Is this thought reliable as to there being something wrong? I experience something like a pain somewhere between my throat & my stomach when I encounter a polarity to something I hold as unity (agrees with my beliefs & weltanshaung).

On polarity the thwan of hex #53 (Yi King) has some info.
KWI-MIH's thunder rolls above the lake.
Polarise, repolarise -partake!
...& under the Yi Jing website (Wilhelm) the hex & it's images are noted here.
The theme & clue is there is to focus on what is enduring rather than the temporal.
source: ...
If we permit ourselves to drift along, we come together and are parted again as the day may determine. If on the other hand a man fixes his mind on an end that endures, he will succeed in avoiding the reefs that confront the closer relationships of people.

Buddha's idea is simply that pain is the result of being separate from that which is eternal being. I will bring this back into the fold in a later comment.
I have noticed many times that when I consider politics as an eternal struggle without resolution & war the same way & any particular temporal position as futile the pain goes away. Governments are always taxing too much. Wars are always seen as wrong from one perspective & right from another.

These are just the eternal elements of human evolution that we must pass through on our way to that oneness that we only have glimpses of today & maybe just a few times in our lives.






Mark de LA says
Another quote which may be apropos to the RWG:
Responsibility begins with the willingness to be cause in the matter of one's life. Ultimately, it is a context from which one chooses to live. Responsibility is not burden, fault, praise, blame, credit, shame or guilt. In responsibility, there is no evaluation of good or bad, right or wrong. There is simply what's so, and your stand. Being responsible starts with the willingness to deal with a situation from the view of life that you are the generator of what you do, what you have and what you are. That is not the truth. It is a place to stand. No one can make you responsible, nor can you impose responsibility on another. It is a grace you give yourself - an empowering context that leaves you with a say in the matter of life.
-Werner Erhard
Another distinction is that there is what happens & then there is the story of what happens.




Mark de LA says
It is eternal & it is part of the RWG to make the RWG wrong!  OTOH, transforming the RWG to a cooperative kind of conversation both internal & external might be better for humans!
