See ya in a while

July 27, 2006

I can’t post in blogs and such. I always enter my “debate” mode. Which I hate and leads to nowhere. I’m not about to “discuss” who’s right about God and life. Who in the world knows?
Hopefully one day I’ll be “free as in freedom” and be able to express my thoughts in “non-violence” mode.

You see. I was poisoned before in my life by thoughts of a God that could get mad out of the blue. I’m detoxicating… but I guess it takes longer than I thought.  When I find freedom of thought I guess I’ll write. 🙂 see ya guys.

Lately

July 24, 2006

“Lately I’ve been feeling low, and a remedy’s what I’m looking for, cooking for.”

-Dave Matthews Band

That verse from DMB simply came to my mind right before I’d start to tell about what I’ve been up to lately.

I’m feeling good. Thank God my health has been OK, and that hasn’t been a problem since I left the hospital. I’ve been going to the gym for a couple of days now. I intend to keep on going, Lord willing.

I’m reading Thomas Keating. I’m practicing Centering Prayer. I’m doing a version I’ve got cooked that’s basically Centering Prayer and some practical lessons by Sakyong Rinpoche.

Amazing!It’s been a crazy 2 months. I’ve read a bunch of crazy philosophy and esoteric works. Fantastic works.

I read “Meetings with remarkable men” by Gurdjieff, half of “In search of the miraculous” by P.D. Ouspensky, listened to tons of Alan Watts from his audio archives. I’ve learned in 2 months a lot about Hinduism, Buddhism and Zen Buddhism. And I’ve learned about the ancient Jewish religion of the Old Testament and about Christianity too.

God is very good. And I’ve enjoyed this time very much. My life is very blessed. It’s always been. Thank God.

I hope you guys are OK. Please let me know how you’re doing.

The problem with time

April 24, 2006

I really need to get rid of the "I don't have time" idea. Every human being has the same amount of time. It's just that some know how to use it, others don't. I'm in the don't team.

I have to make the time for prayer. Else, I'm not going anywhere.

Origin of Dion Pugil

April 22, 2006

The name Dion Pugil is taken from an amazing story:

The Father Confessor. By Herman Hesse.

By the way, if you haven't read any good books lately, pick up Siddhartha by Hesse. You won't regret it. In fact you will wonder why in the world no one told you to read it before. (Sorry, I had forgoten to tell you).
