"enlightenment is ungraspable, enlightening beings are ungraspable, all things are ungraspable, sentient beings are ungraspable, the mind is ungraspable, action is ungraspable, the past is ungraspable, the future is ungraspable, the present is ungraspable, all worlds are ungraspable, and the created and uncreated are ungraspable"

another fun fediverse diversion:
pick a time line
find a pattern
("narrative" counts as a pattern)
linking sequential toots

πŸ˜πŸ”—πŸ˜

debate 

future 

there are lots of links to birdsite
that i come across

whenever i click one
and view the "discussion" therein

i am (once again) made happy
by my decision to leave that platform
and (once again) troubled
that so many willingly focus their attentions
on this train wreck of ignorance hatred and bullying

once again
(i blame) capitalism

siri characteristics
(from apple via the guardian):

β€œin nearly all cases, Siri doesn’t have a point of view”
β€œnon-human”
β€œincorporeal”
β€œplaceless”
β€œgenderless”
β€œplayful”
β€œhumble”

(of course, they left out the most important one:
"always listening")

i guess it's the capitalists dream assistant ...

television
is an alternate reality

(even if "populated" by many millions
(of course, this begs the question of the nature of reality, and/or its identity))

one of the great things about the fediverse is that you can be as weird as you wanna, and inevitably, someone will message you that they have some kinda resonance with what you have put out there in order to manifest of your uniqueness or aloneness or hopelessness or bizarreness ...

self care:
spent a half hour updating mastodon instance profiles (boxen)

metaphysical knowledge spheres:
+ all times, all lands, all things, and all beings
+ undifferentiated true thusness
+ unobstructed reality realm
+ boundless absolute truth
+ unqualified space
+ objectless
(reformatted from avatamsaka)

objectlessness
(beyond being)

lovely this morning

as i was "coming back" to my mind
(even without going anywhere)
the timing bell rang
more or less when i was ready for it

πŸ””

today (after months of effort)
read up to, then beyond p.1000
of avatamsaka sutra

+ 500 pp. to go
+ additional 100 pp. of commentary
+ apparently enlightenment not found by reading (only)

πŸƒβ˜Έ

still disturbed after hate ("straight") pride event

+ police were enablers of this event
+ police went out of their way to intimidate (seemed their primary mission)
+ why does "straight" pride parade have milo as marshall?
+ how ruined is milo's career that he's reduced to running around with these shitheads
+ seems like things are going to get much worse for 'murica as half of country are "loyal" (obedient) to their fuehrer
+ domestic press continues to aid racists and bigots to obtain "eyeballs"
+ don't even want to think about how often i was photographed, cell phone tagged, and who knows what else by law enforcement

and we (in boston) put up a lively opposition to hate mongers

(shudders)

Currently, our best estimate is 34 people arrested, mostly counterprotesters, some journalists. This is highly unusual for a daytime, downtown, well-attended protest. The BPD are out of control. #DEFENDBOS #ALLOUTBOS
