"I agree with you, and...
It is probably true that everybody, in an ultimate sense, does what they want and chooses what they do. The fact that they choose it does not necessarily make it the best thing, but iit is the best they can see at the time…"
"Agree, it is very complicated and the boundaries of the mind, will, thought, genes, environment... become blurry. Having said this, still, we do hold some control over it, and we can still try to move our thoughts, our life to what and where we…"
"Yes, it is very complicated, isn't it? We each have a certain nature, and can change it by degrees and a lot depends on how we think about it, yet how we think about things is also our nature, so it can easily become circular. There again,…"
"I don't think that most of the people that do bad things, really stop and think they are doing wrong, same thing happens to the people that good do things. Now with all the flooding happening in Florida, many people went out rescuing others as…"
"Why do we do "good" things and "bad" things? They all probably seemed like the right thing to do at the time. I am currently reading a history book and am reading about the Tsar Peter the Great of Russia. I find such people who…"
Hace poco en una reunión de grupo, un investigador presentó el famoso tema del “Microbioma”. Este es un tema que en recientes fechas ha cobrado mucho interés, la idea de ser “controlados” por los habitantes de nuestras entrañas suele desatar emociones extremas, pudiendo parecer un tema fascinante o bien una historia de terror moderna, algo como “los verdaderos zombies”.

The more input you get from the teacher and the phenomenal world and the more you develop, at the same time, the more you question. So there is a kind of dance taking place between the teacher and yourself. You are not particularly trying to switch off…

Our efforts to be decent, caring beings are always based in and therefore contaminated by our self centredness, greed hatred and delusion. This is due to the…
