POETRY PARTY! GOT BUDDHA...


In a moment of grace all karma is burned...

Buddha's powerful words on achieving escape from suffering through detachment from our thinking and the five senses kicks down the door to freedom.

"All things, O priests, are on fire. And what, O priests, are all these things which are on fire?

"The eye, O priests, is on fire; forms are on fire; eye-consciousness is on fire; impressions received by the eye are on fire; and whatever sensation, pleasant, unpleasant, or indifferent, originates in dependence on impressions received by the eye, that also is on fire.
"And with what are these on fire?

"With the fire of passion, say I, with the fire of hatred, with the fire of infatuation; with birth, old age, death, sorrow, lamentation, misery, grief, and despair are they on fire.

Decide now to get off the "wheel of suffering." Release your attachment to what was with love in a moment of grace you can give yourself. Do it. Now. Be free today and always. Be free of what was, but more importantly be free to live in the possibility of this moment by being willing to be your best self unattached to any labels anyone, including yourself tries to pin on you.
