Conversation With Buddha -- includes swear words.


I’ve been working on letting go of my ego.  You know, the thing that says “I have to this…,” “I need to meet her/him…,” “I’m not successful enough for….” 

The happy New-Age definition of Ego is:  The ego is a collection of beliefs and past experiences that defines how a person interacts with life.

Okay, that’s boring as shit and could take us down the road of reverse marketing, when “marketing” is a big part of why our ego’s are so fucked. 

So, let’s see what the Buddha says:

You will not be punished from you anger, you will be punished by your anger.

Shit, that’s because I used the “fuck” word in my blog again, isn’t it?

Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.

Okay, sorry for swearing, I won’t do it again.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

Okay, Buddha, I get it.  I suck.

Pain is certain, suffering is optional.

Now you are really confusing me.

A man asked Me, ‘I want happiness.’  I said, ‘First remove I, that’s Ego, then remove want, that’s desire.  See, now you are left with only Happiness.

Wow, Buddha, I think I’m getting it. 

Don’t call me Buddha, Buddha.

 
And so, my conversation with the Buddha ended, or… has it?
