the wondrous
the wonder is booming the universe
how there is a proposal that the universe is wondrous and mysterious and inconceivable
and that this universe is blossoming and blooming
right now
or that there's a there's a wondrous
blossoming truth or a wonderful wondrous blossoming teaching
there's a sutra
by that name
the wondrous dharma flower the wonderous flowering dharma
the wondrous dharma the wondrous flower universe the wonder for wondrous
universal flowering

i can think it could also say that that the
that there is a a wondrous
moral universe
a part of with part of the way the that the universe works or the way nature works is morally
i think the boot is actually proposed it
there is an actual moral working in this universe
that intention
has consequence
and that world that in within the universe there are there are worlds
the universe is not ah
is is many worlds and different all the different worlds are due to intention and aspiration of living beings and buddhists
living beings in buddhist make worlds within the universe
and and this is happening in a wondrous mysterious inconceivable
flower like blossoming

so we're coming towards the end of this
dream of a year
and i promise this year to focused on
causation last january
hi i'm i'm wished to continued but i'm also kind of making like i would say like and sense i'm making
her causation on lotus sutra sandwich
i like to surround the study of causation by the lotus sutra
but also if you studied causation
you will discover in the middle of causation
the lotus the loudest universe
you will discover the blossoming of the truth in the middle of the study of causation and in particular
in the middle of the study of moral causation
which could also be said that we will discover the truth
in the study of
cause and effect
in other words by studying our karmic consciousness
which we have we have kind of consciousness by studying this skillfully we will discover
the supreme good
so i'm intending for next year too
i listed the beginning of the year to work with the lotus sutra more in relationship to the ongoing work of
developing an acting from deep faith
in the study of karmic consciousness
so we say for certain we say deep faith and cause and effect as an abbreviation for deep faith
that if you study comic cause and effect the truth will be revealed if you study it
it should be revealed when you start are studying and you may not be to skillful but if you continue to study it you will become more skillful matter of fact
you will become buddha
the boot is
the buddha is
comic cause and effect
they study it thoroughly and clarify its workings
and realized a supreme truth through this study of karmic cause and effect
that's what i've heard and based on that i'm inviting and encouraging us to do as the boot has do i'm studying
comic consciousness look at your own mental activity look at the story in your mind now
a pretty story in your mind now
look at the story in your mind now look at what your mind is at the universe that your mind is constructing
in the universe at the mine constructs is a world within the universe
i've heard teachings which i share with you and i will continue to share with you about how to study comic con
ha just checked to see if you're page and heard me how do i suggest starting studying climate consciousness
by what yeah and how to ice once you're looking at your mind how do i suggest you study this mind
not just a mind but the activity of the mind study the study activity of the mind and how do i suggest target been suggesting how does the buddha's suggest
studying the activity of the mind
become a where are the stories and how does a buddhist study their stores
and how did a study cause and effect of the stories
the same thing that's interaction the buddha way is to study your stories study use doors is to study the cause and effect of your stories
when you when your
what were you say
the silent still with your story
the relax with your story
what the generous with your story
welcome your stories be loving dear stories love your stories
play with your stories
don't be judgmental bunch of stories even if your stories are about being judgmental
this is how to study our stories
this is how the buddhist study their stories and our stories
if you look as if you see an intention years and you're you're you're seeing a pattern so when you look in your mind and you see a pattern that pattern the overall pattern a sea of your mind that is your intention
well he look i'm suggesting i'm suggesting now the study of your version of your relationships
yeah my version of my relationships is my mind times to i'm not saying don't study your relationships go ahead study your relationships but before you do them i would suggest you study your version of your relationships other words study or the mental activity
i've constructing a story about your relationships spiders patterns
do you say stories it makes some things
every objective pattern happening in new yes not just the story that's not just fix
you see a common denominator
and that doesn't have to be fish
stay why
get an iud told me a story just i didn't you
so i would suggest reality
so you're told me a story which you said as or can you have a story that your story as a reality
travel with the story because it makes everything except everything section
it's not that everything's fiction and just everything that i think anything i think is a fiction not not everything's affliction just everything i think his affection
you can say interpretation but then if then if you say the interpretation is a reality
then i would say
you're not really been kind to the what you call interpretation if you say it's a reality
soccer just stay kind the consciousness of everything
how can you static camera
how can see how you relate how can you study kind of consciousness if one everything is as a total fabrication
it's not to say again that everything's a total fabrication
and i saying that i'm just saying
the that what we have in our minds or mental activity is
mental that it is mental fabrication that's worked that are we can see
and i'm suggesting studying that mental fabrication
but not saying everything's mental fabrication
but i think if you study if uganda mental fabrication anybody got any mental fabrications for example storytelling interpretations intentions and intention here is a good thought construction
like you see okay
this is a good situation
i don't need to do anything
somebody else to inactive saying this is a bad situation i need to do something does are two different thought constructions that are two different interpretations what i'm saying is
if you study the it was two people would study their intentions they would discover something that's not just a mental fabrication they would story they would realize reality if they would study their thought constructions about
i'm i'm not there is a reality to if you have a fiction there's a reality to the fiction fixes have as much reality as
ah a frog or the color blue
everything has everything has reality everything has everything is part of the blooming of the truth the wondrous booming of the truth everything including
a story in your mind
if i make a fiction
in some people do intentionally make are fictions and write them down so that people can study their mind
hesitate that's what they used the fiction for as a way to study the mind
in the point is in a mine is not just to tell more fictions but to realize to enter
and no to know reality because know in reality
is something which some people value namely the buddhas and you might say also discuss expression scientists
scientific knowledge
i believe at least the way some people understand science is close to as knowledge because scientific knowledge
is intended to bear on reality
however human beings are enclosed in their stories about what's going on
and it was if we study these stories
the buddhists say and some scientists also say if you study the story you have about what's going on you will discover
in the midst of the story or you will study the reality you will realize the reality of comic consciousness

the reality of the the reality of cosmic consciousness is that is insubstantial
is that it it cannot be grasped
that's the ultimate reality of it another reality of it is that it dependently core arises
comic consciousness the buddha says cosmic consciousness has consequence
in other words the buddha seas
has been observing cosmic consciousness has been observing the storytelling of that's going on mine and sees it the her how season that does and how it does have consequence and how it creates whirls and how it is for human beings domain me
main problem of human life is kind of consciousness
because it creates enclosure
and in the enclosure it creates discomfort
and other unfortunate things happened within comic consciousness
yes occlusion do you mean like separation
i separation would be kind of a pen and closure yeah but also just that you that you have your own version of was going on and you actually lived there like you have your own version of what italians are
and you actually that's that's how you deal with italians in terms of your own version of them rather than opening up to what they're actually like
most people live in a world where they do not see buddha's for example
they have a story about what buddhists are but they don't see them
right now
and the phantom we got word and lotus sutra that the buddhas are actually present with us right now but we can see them because where on attached to our story
we're attached to our version of reality
we think it's substantial
and because of that we can't see the buddha's
another story is a
actually this is kind of a little bit of that
there's there's two cases in the book of serenity one cases case thirty seven which is called active consciousness or comic consciousness
and in this case sixty seven which is called
the flower adornment scripture
so in case thirty seven they too
zen practitioners to disciples of the buddha
who are so-called famous zen masters to have in conversation about the statement that all living beings and that includes bodhisattvas just have comic consciousness
finally got
boundless and unclear with no fundamental to rely on most people who have come consciousness think that there's some fundamental to rely on that's part of their cosmic consciousness is i think there's some fundamental hear that you can rely on in your story about what's going on

there is no fundamental to rely on but people think there is but the buddhist see living beings just have cosmic consciousness
but it's boundless and is unclear
and there's no fundamental jury lion
however buddhists can also look at kind of consciousness and see that it's boundless but for them it's clear and there's no phone no fundamental to rely on
case sixty seven says the buddha looks at all sentient beings and says all these sentient beings fully possess the wisdom and virtues of the buddha's
however because of misconceptions and attachments
they don't see it they don't realize it
so the buddhist seats all these living beings just have come and consciousness hand while they just have come and consciousness they simultaneously fully possessed the wisdom and the virtues of the buddha but they don't get it because they don't understand their comic consciousness
so the buddhist as i maybe i'll teach them or what am i gonna kitchen i'm gonna teach him about comic consciousness
for example i'll teach them that
good karma has the result of benefit and listing things up
on skillful karma has the consequence of
causing beings to fall down and be miserable
this is a law
this is a way buddhist saw things working
this way of seeing things bears on reality
it's knowledge of reality
however when knowledge there's on reality
there's no strict criterion
for the knowledge there's indeterminacy ease in a knowledge saw the buddha said good karma
has good results back home has bad results has lots of in determined to see in this knowledge of reality
but what is saying it's a moral universe that's that's the reality which i know
i know this reality but there's indeterminacy
example there's in discern turned indeterminacy in the content
have this knowledge
for example because he's a good karma leads to good results but
the good karma depends on the good result so it's kind of indeterminate how that would work because you might think it's good you have a story that is good a happy story that you're doing good but that good depends on its result and you can see it resolved yet
so it's kind of it's not that clear what good really is and also the result doesn't just happen it isn't just the next thing that happens or the thing that happens in two weeks but does a series and possible results all of which determine whether it's actually good or not
yes oil
how do i define it having to do with intention
so for example if you do something unintentionally
then it's not it's not really a moral action now if you do something intentionally but don't notice that you did it that doesn't that doesn't the same so if you're rude to somebody or if you like don't think it's important
to pay attention to where you put your feet
and then and because you don't think it's important to pay attention to where you put your feet you step on something and kill it
he didn't intend to kill it but you didn't you didn't tend to have pay attention to where your feet were you did you didn't eat it how he had the story where have i don't have to be careful where i walk based on that story you didn't pay attention where you walk and you stepped on a newt is and he didn't want to kill the newt
but you didn't want to pay attention to where the new tour
but if you actually like a high
accidently what the i i was on
somebody hit me and i fell backwards and bumped into you in a new fell over and
hurt your shoulder on the wall i wouldn't call that i'm i what you did a moral action so it's like a karmic action
more serious case of volitional yeah the definition of in the buddha's the kind of cause and effect of buddha wants us to look at his called karmic but karmic for buddha in this context means intentional
means that your mind has constructed this
so far when our action what i should say our action when it when it has intention it that's that's moral action when you think of a story about about your relationship with someone
that story is more is intentional he that you were in control of making but that story is your intention in will of in relationship to the other person if you want to be their friend you want to help them you think maybe you can that's a story you have in your mind that's a in you
you are responsible for their story
namely you can pay attention to it or not
if you don't hear kind of not accepting your responsibility so moment by moment we have
your mine is active we have active can we have active consciousness
no time on we have active consciousness and the statement is living beings all just have this active consciousness
if we don't attend to it were not accepting the responsibility for this
comic consciousness and this comic consciousness is responsible for all the problems that you know the real solvable problems in the world
so we and we can be responsible we can accept the responsibility of watching our own mental construction of us going on and we can watch and observe
how we speak from those mental traumas those those intentions and how we posture and gesture so when we speak from an intention or with an intention that also is a moral speaking
healthy i got off that is not in it it doesn't not coming from my intention
the intention intentions fire and then the attention somehow doesn't quite match the intention how could how could the that attention and intention
equally meeting together so that okay
at an interesting start question so you can have a very lofty intention but been very unskillful paying attention to whatever
like you can have a lofty intention for example of making every
you can make them have the lofty intention of every moment having the intention to live for the welfare of all beings so high right now i wish to live for the welfare of all beings and
i i wish i i'd would like
to have this
intention to live for the welfare for beings every moment there are be a lofty intention and my attention is not a strong know i keep forgetting that that's my that i like an intention so i even at a lofty intention
but not very well supported by years your your skills at attention
and you can also have it's also possible to have a low intention
and a quite well developed attention so that you notice your low intentions
but you actually notice all your low intentions
if you have low intentions
but you actually pay attention to them the buddha teaches that you will realize this truth
if you pay attention to your low intentions you will realize the truth if you and you also your intentions will also evolved into more and more lofty intentions as you pay attention to your low intentions
but the most important thing is
that you realize the truth because once you realize the truth you will have lofty intentions
yes my habitual thinking and action seems to have neither attention know ended
i say excuse me
what you just said
i think dependent on you having some attention
much later it was not a visual party my statement was not a visual of this different or better with this is your this is your this is your rare and wonderful one
which was i have a rare and one for one is that you notice
the habit of not paying attention to through but when you notice it you're not paying attention now you're doing buddha's work when you notice that usually don't reboot his work you're doing but his work
and buddhist art are looking at all beings with love with total love and they're noticing quite a few of these living beings are not doing my work i wish they would i'd like to teach him how if they would they would realize that they fully possessed the wisdom and virtue of the buddhist they would realize they are buddhist children
but they had to devote his work to realize it
and to notice that you're not going but his work boot as if somebody's not doing his work boot it does the work i'm noticing that person is not paying attention to themselves and buddha wants to help them pay attention themselves because then they will realize
the wondrous blooming universe
and if you notice that rarely do i pay attention
we compared the same time when you notice that buddhist noticing and with you
and however boot is also been very is loving you and loving your habit of rarely noticing what you're doing
so if you pay attention and you love this tendency to almost never pay attention you're just like the buddha's
except i would say again just remember that they love so fully they do not dwell in the thing they're loving so if you notice the habit of inattention and you pay attention to it and love it completely and don't dwell on it that's exactly the same as buddha
and this is possible according to the buddha's we have this ability
this is another way to say deep faith and cause and effect other way said deep faith in studying yourself what is yourself comic consciousness deep faith and studying karmic consciousness deep faith is studying self causation
we need this buddha's habit and they practice according to him
one more thing
one imagine
well the world the universe the universe not a little worlds within the universe but the universe is always studying itself
the universe is studying itself the universe is studying moral causation and one of the way to studies more causation is through buddhas and bodhisattvas
however in the world usually people are encouraging us to look away from ourselves to look at almost anything but ourselves
sometimes they say look at yourself
when they say that actually
they're giving us good advice
what they mean by looking at some is has looking yourself the way i'm looking at you but they mean as look at yourself how i see you know what i'm studying myself
but when they say look at yourself actually that's that's a rare but wonderful instruction the world is generally speaking saying look at him look at her look at society that look at his broad and look at her problems that how well she's doing with how well he's doing look look look
anywhere but back here
this is a normal flow of of worlds
and most of us are going with that habitually were habitually going with look outward
now somebody will say kind of i'm not the word is but some someone would say the world is trying to make it easy on us by by saying look outward
cast your vision outward it's much easier that way
if suffered stuff but it's easy
but the path of truth is to turn the light around and shine a back on yourself
and when and that is in the words of michelle the montagnier that is a pain for movement
it's hard to turn and spend your time looking at yourself to give your life to studying yourself it's a painful change of direction and what you see when you look will be stuff like
not pleasant stuff to see necessarily but just generally the change of direction is is disorienting because we're usually looking outward and people are telling us book our to turn around and looked back at comic consciousness is difficult is painful is frightening is despair
bring is nauseating is discouraging however i'm saying to you this is what the buddha as do
except they're not too much turning around
it just you know they're just they're they're like steadily oriented towards studying themselves
and encouraging others to stay in themselves
and when they see others who are not putting themselves they are studying themselves simultaneously
this is buddha's works so even was hard
i hope that we can be like this is hard work but it is the work it is the work it's the work of the buddha's to study yourself if you say that wholeheartedly you have kind of deep faith in cause and effect you have deep faith in that the buddha way is to study mice
i can notice that other people are not studying themselves because they come and tell me that they aren't like johnny just said habitually i don't
so i hear him but when i hear him i also have a job is study myself who's listening to him
and maybe i think
i have trouble to johnny
or maybe i think
i used to have trouble to johnny
or i don't have trouble now and i'm setting myself okay but tomorrow i may forget to etc i've studied myself
while i hear other people tell me about their self study or their lack of it
they told me they tell me about the lack of it by saying i'm not doing it are they tell me about their lack of it by talking about other people without demonstrating that they're studying themselves when they talk about others

okay guys or something really is okay
if you just take a word for just finished a moment take away the word tend and say i analyze what i see when i looked back at myself to say that buddha's analyze kind of consciousness so if you're analyzing common consciousness in
the boys do that too if you're looking to see what story is there people kind of story is this
examining the story in your mind right now is the work of the buddhas and bodhisattvas
having a tendency to do that is not as good as just doing it
did just do it to the study is good to having a tendency i think probably means that the study will not be as good when not be as kind as if you just analyze
have you read the whole hearted in your analysis of your story in there will be a tendency to do it anymore
suddenly since you're not leaning into analyzing and other words so i you could say i'm uprightly and while i upright and i uprightly analyze my stories i don't i don't tend to because you tend to then your do tend to do it the way did it
last time
so this is partly good
this is partly good this story i would say and that story
it may it may seem that way
it may seem like the eagles analyzing itself and if that's it that's it that's the way it seems and that's the story you have you ever story of ego analyzing itself that's a perfectly good story
but it's a story
to try to see
the story

as it is yeah without yeah integrity oh this is
the story as and as a treaty with saying you could call the story and interpretation think you just have an interpretation or a story and and what do you do with it
he love it
you hope you wholeheartedly attend to it
and you so wholeheartedly attend to it that you arrive at
no abode
that's why this bicycle new abode new abode is where you arrive when you wholeheartedly
study yourself which includes
being totally engaged
with self in total engagement with self in total engagement with karmic consciousness you you come to know about
and if you're not totally engaged it's in the study of yourself you're still allowed to come to know about and learn how to totally engage
in studying yourself
it sounds like people are doing some turning the light around and shining back in the south and studying the self
and we can all get better at this study
could i'll get more skillful at the study

you just told me a story the story was it seems like a useless imaginary blah blah
he just looked at yourself inside it but did you see you when you reported that did you see were telling me the story and your mind at a time
did you
yes oh good
so there are people do sometimes have story this is useless what we're doing here is useless
talking to us lose useless listening to use lou useless how trying to help you as you're useless you're trying to help me it's useless these are stories which occur in people's minds
nine hundred and by your store anymore
hi i'm just saying you could have a story this is useless it's useless to practice is useless to be silent and still is useless
however being the still might be the way you noticed that you had a story that it was useless and then if you can continue to be and still with the story it's useless to be sounded is still
now you're starting to open up to the truth
which lives in the story of this is useless
historic first

it yes

so i heard somebody say i'm afraid of looking
not good not not not intelligent
if i had that story that i'm afraid and
and i am somewhat aware that i have that story
and and read saying to me
if i would study that story that i'm afraid to speak because of how i would look that i will discover the truth
without this or that we're not necessarily ever asking a question possibly

for with ask or with asking a question

discovering things just not

what the way things the way things are his happily ever after that's the way they are actually happily ever after
what part is
that's a
what we're learning of years
it's the pentagon has happily ever after
dependent dependent arising is basically happy happy ever after happy happiness forever
that's basically what it is
but when i wear that

yeah but happily ever after includes that we feel compassion for all those who do not realize it and compassion means we actually feel pain
but it's a good it's a happy pain we feel pain or all those who do not realize this and who are living in fear of for example of people think of him
but who you know where you know we're happily or and for were happily ever after with everybody in react the way that's the way things actually are in in the moral and morality of the universe and the moral universe everything's blossoming all the time into beautiful flowers everything's a beautiful flower
but the beautiful flower is a flower sometimes that think it's ugly
or thinks it's better than other flowers and as afraid that the not such good looking flowers will come in
you know defile as or something
so the buddhist these these flowers need help to realize that their flowers and that nothing is going to defile them
they need help to realize that their flowers
undefinable flowers
but they are actually under fallible flowers
but they but these being somebody flowers or have come a consciousness and they have not studied their karmic consciousness wholeheartedly enough
for example
i'm concerned about what other people think about me i'm worried that they don't like me that they might stop liking me if they do like me i'm worried about that i'm afraid that they'll stop loving me in supporting me
and i don't love that bot wholeheartedly
i don't love the thought
i'm afraid of people
i'm afraid of this person i'm afraid this prison doesn't love me i don't love that thought in my mind wholeheartedly therefore i dwell in it when i dwell on it
i don't see
damn happy ever after in all my relationships
federal on it
if i don't want it for then then i observe how things are and the way they are is this is kate
wondrously blossoming universe this is a wonderfully booming reality and i am very happy and i love all beings and anybody who doesn't get it i'm very happy to try to help them
have this knowledge this is the knowledge of the buddha's and i wish them to have this knowledge
and and i see the way things are when i don't dwell on them and i don't dwell on them when i love them one hundred percent
so if i had a kind of consciousness which is worried about what will happened to me
what will happen to me when i lose everything i've got it what will happen to me when i'm a total wreck
and i will be a total wreck if i hang around much longer but why if i'm worried about that if i love that worry that of what will happen to me when i get in directness if i love it completely i won't dwell on it
and then right well i'm were right in that worrying about what's going to happen to me
the truth is realized and then i want to transmit this wonderful knowledge to other banks this is a story of the lotus sutra
the buddha sees how wonderful it is to put a wants everybody to want to know this wonderful world
but inside of the lotus sutra i'm just mentioning we have to study kind of consciousness
if we don't study kind of consciousness they were read a lot of sutra
but we sometimes will not love it
but if we love our own kind of consciousness we can love the lotus or and when we love the neurosurgery would dwell in the lotus a tracer and we don't draw a lot of or realize the truth of the lotus sutra by the same if you don't if you love your own kind of consciousness she won't dwell on it and you realize the lotus sutra so the buddhist says when you love your own comic consciousness
now there was when you work with whatever com a consciousness is coming and your upright honest gentle and harmonious you will see the border right now teaching the dharma
said say
i am concerned about this definition of compassion
for all things and compassion for
i'm just wondering or or the more about these might have compassion for other evolved beings who still are not completely evolved
what wondering where his disciples indifference yes
strikes me that
more involved in terms of inception
all your kitchen as well because the courtesy they're still the knowledge that no matter what action
you can predict where it's going to go and it seems to me up there is the basis of compassion right there that known as you act and that watch
just in the interosseous with great compassion your own action just like everyone else's actions
you've entered it
it just struck me that maybe that's the basis
skillful means compassion as you are even impact this great college
happy faces
passion with others
revolutionary understand
so you say that if you
if you felt that your the that someone was not
attending to their own self in a fully loving way
that if you if you wanted to help them become more skillful attending to their own their own kind of consciousness in a more skillful way so that they can become discoverers of reality to
that you would realize that isn't there some indeterminacy in in the working of what you offered to them yeah
and i'm in i would propose that part of a knowledge which bears on reality is that you do know that doesn't mean determined to see sit in awe at the basis
of knowledge that bears on reality
if you have knowledge
that doesn't have any determined to see that that doesn't have any indeterminacy in it than that knowledge doesn't bear on reality
and there's some to some debate here you know some people have you
a knowledge some people propose and knowledge which has
strict criteria
i am now
suggesting to that the knowledge of the buddhist in my understanding is a knowledge which has
indeterminate content
indeterminate characteristics and even indeterminate knowing
that that's the that's the that's the kind of
knowledge which bears on reality has indeterminacy in it so there can be confidence in the knowledge
here's an example to examples one is
there was this person who we caught copurnicus
in the west
and he did some calculations and he threw these calculations he came to have a on i understanding and knowledge dawned upon him that the earth was rotating around the sun rather than the sun rotating around the earth
and got other planets to
we're also rotating around the sun with sort of with the earth at this different distances from the sun
this was a a reality which he discovered
now she i don't know i'm not so sure i don't know enough about him to know how much he was in touch how much his how much his understanding of of his knowledge of the
rotation of the plants around the sun i don't know how much he knew that there was determined to see their
but in fact now if we look we can see there was indeterminacy
for example he thought that the planets were going in circles around the sun
hi again he may have bought the some indeterminacy in circles but i don't know that he did but in fact
we now know there is indeterminacy in the circles of this other planets going around the sun and indeterminacy is sometimes called the indeterminacy of his circles of the orbit is sometimes called and lips
other words another person came along and kepler and he
received as though were a fact the knowledge of copernicus and based on the knowledge of components which he took as a fact he developed three laws and one of them was that the plant are moving and elliptical orbits around the sun
so one person discovers a reality called planetary rotation around the sun
and he discovered something else he thinks actually didn't discover this he imagined that they go in circles and based on what he did discover somebody else discovered another law
which he wasn't expecting
so this shows the indeterminacy
of the law he found
can i won't now successfully something which i was quite surprised to read and which have said yeah
the prison a michael pollan panini
said whenever we believe in the reality of a thing we expect that the thing for manifest itself and yet unknown ways in the future
am i presented
don't compare to the believe in the reality of something can think that the thing's gonna be the same in the future
so one way i would read that is when we actually believing in the reality of the thing not the appearance of the thing but the reality of it that we will expect that this thing will manifest in unknown ways in the future so if you believe in the reality of this hand not just the appearance of his hand but the
the reality of his hand you would expect that his hand could do something unknown to you in the future
same with a person if you
if you believe in the reality that person rather than the way the person appears
you would expect that they would stick to something which you cannot imagine or don't know anything about in the future
but we often don't do that with people who we often believe in their parents not the reality and their parents we expect perhaps to go on
and another thing i say is another example of indeterminacy is
dr watson sherlock holmes partner dr watson therapy know that so dr watson makes an observation
which sherlock holmes of agrees on
now present boil after what am i say the earth is moving around the sun and sherlock holmes ha
how do you said you know it agrees with that reality he says well so what does he say when he did with this happens he says
no but for before the elementary he says blah blah he said all
and now i see that so and so killed him
and watch and goes what
watson often officer the thing which comes agrees with half of the reality but then homes sees the indeterminacy or and i can see it but home see something which which wasn't didn't realize when he was offering this observation which was correct
like ah
port or watson says that example is watson says
the milk was delivered on tuesday
which holds agrees with but he didn't but now i see all
ah now i see in the system wasn't us warm elementary and and explains
so they're observing the same reality but this
there's an unexpected variability in the contents of that reality
watson was not talking about the case of trying to sell if just mentioning that the milk was delivered on tuesday
at home says that this is a solution to the to the case the and study
he was what
and love dr loved on where dr watson said yeah in some ways
in some ways homes is better at loving with dr watson says and dr watson is
dr watson's who says it's milk was delivered by doesn't love it completely so he just stops theory he's kind of prague them dr watson and but homes love dr watson so much that he hino doctor wasn't will manifest in unknown ways in the future
so in some ways i would say that the way the books written is it makes homes is a more wholehearted lover than dr watson it's even though dr watch a really nice guy he doesn't love things as hot as as wholeheartedly as homes does homes they kept constant breaking free of
his usual sense of reality
by his love of well pretty much everything
make the future

as one person does
two three four okay so i'm begging you to welcome the fear and you may say all i can i bet you to welcome your inability to welcome

and you can do that if you if you can see all the difficult stuff turner i look back here and do with and love all the self all this karmic consciousness here
then you can you can realize not abiding
and then you can realize
the inconceivably wondrous blossoming dharma
in all things

he went to the movie called the where the wild ones are
where the wild things are
is it in three d
i wanted if the a three-day movie with my grandson
he was about dogs
why because it but this guy who puts balloons on his house and house
it's called up yeah
i think that's a movie also about something
try one of the best things about the movies it has these dogs around these collars because they were his collar you can hear what they're thinking
i'm a dog i love you
gather their thoughts get good vocalized through these collars
hundred and they moved their master i remember but there were these collars is that what they're thinking all the dog thoughts come out
i don't remember if they were studying their intentions
i remember that if it was sign that they were looking inward
we all
but actually this one example i gave the dog was aware that about that they that they will because their dogs they love you know
well they love their masters anyway
so the don't in that case the dog was studying their their consciousness and then but sometimes from work during our consciousness we don't have a collar that amplifies and and puts out in the world that we're aware
there were afraid
that were tensing up around our fear
but sometimes people do sit there and say i'm afraid and i'm tempting around my fear people decent time say that and
i applaud that because not just because they're aware but because they're on a path
other buddha's they're actively practicing the work of the buddhist not the lotus sutra says even if you're not aware right now of yourself even if you're not studying yourself even if you're not wholeheartedly loving your kind of consciousness you still will start doing that work eventually the buddha says you're gonna be buddha's not the word you
we are going to start doing this hard work
and we're going to get really good at it
we're going to all get really good at studying ourself at mostly to says that
so let's please get really good at studying yourself the world needs us to do this
please help me study myself
the lotus sutra the lotus sutra says love is going to come love is going to come and set us all free it is coming
we will let it in eventually and become buddha
it it's gonna happen that's the message of lotus sutra
we're going to eventually stop resisting and let buddha's love coming here and take over and raining love everything about ourselves but
it's so actually buddhist loves going to come into as a first of all and encourage us to study ourselves come on thirty years ago and then love ourselves and then
then we're done
we're done
oliver we restart really practicing like buddhists
so let's all guys kind of consciousness and we fully possessed the wisdom and virtue of the buddha's
and the buddhists say
study karma consciousness please
because if you don't time i will
keep you stuck in the realm of not realizing
what you really are
