Dreaming Dharma

Something interesting happened today. It felt like remembering a dream. In the dream my partner asked if I wanted Ink or a doughnut? Then became quite frustrated when I my dream self I had no clue as to what he was talking about.


It's kind of like that riddle from Alice in Wonderland, when she was asked when is a raven like a writing desk? Well hum, first you would have to know the nature of each, but that is looking at the question from a logical point of view. Let's face it the point of Alice in wonderland was not logical.

So which do you want ink or a doughnut? First we have to forget about logic, because it was a dream. Then the other element that must be disregarded is relevance. You know what does this have to do with that?

Well the funny part was I started looking up Dharma training, and was drawn to Great Vow Zen Monastery in Oregon. They have a section of MP3's. Hum OK, interesting. But that led me to YouTube to see some throat singing videos. I find them just amazing. I saw a group live once. Just amazing, and they are very proud of their culture. Which begs the question. Why aren't we?



OK, no politics, this is dreaming and Dharma. What is Dharma. (Other that a name in an odd TV show)



1.

performing of duties of Hinduism: in Hinduism, somebody's duty to behave according to strict religious and social codes, or the righteousness earned by performing religious and social duties

2.

eternal truth in Buddhism: in Buddhism, the truth about the way things are and will always be in the universe or in nature, especially when contained in scripture



for our talk today, we will go with definition #2.

so the Dharma of dreams is about finding truth in the twilight of your mind, and as it universal truth, then there must be a universal mind, and in the universal mind is the universal dream. Now the big question of the day: who is dreaming whom?

Are we dreaming gods, or is God dreaming us?

As we continue the path we become closer to enlightenment, but that is only the journey not the destination. The destination is to be one with all.



More later.
