"Splashes of Joy - in the Cesspools of Life"... (B. Johnson)
Many people are waiting for a word of encouragement in their search for a way out of the tunnel of despair, the swamp of despondency, the morass of fear, the drift of hopelessness... and all these places - "God" uses you to help people - Whoever gives abundantly is to be praised, and whoever gives drinks abundantly, will also get drinks... - We need all friends, so go! - Laughter infects, and weeping makes wet - How to continue despite everything... - Joy is the best medicine ... - Why I do not have to understand everything... - Loneliness - the life crisis at partner loss... (CM Parkes)
"It pays to be an optimist - even when almost everyone is pessimistic"... (M.E.P. Seligman)
"A laugh a day (and an apple - d.48) may help keep the doctor away"... - "Becoming a father will not be difficult, but being a mother (also a father - d.48) will be very much..." - "Daily reminders that children are a gift from "God"... - "When I come home to heaven" (ie for me, the earth is not our home, we are all hikers here on earth, one person longer and the other shorter, etc. - d.48)... (B. Stuckwisch, 1984)
Almost every one of us needs a shot of joy, a splash of joy - to get out of the dirt, let fresh wind into the soul and go on... (B. Johnson)
10 evil works:
1. kill, 2. steal, 3. adulteration, 4. lying, 5. immoral words, 6. clapping, 7. slander, 8. desire, 9. let the anger go free, 10. have wrong prospects...
Zen = ch'an = dhyana = Concentration = Self-training leading to "Satori" = Enlightenment...
Of all the elements the sage should choose the water as his teacher - Water is the all-conqueror (see eg Floods etc. - d.48)... - Water extinguishes fire; Even under pressure, it escapes as a vapor and forms back. Water washes the earth away, or, stopping by rocks, it searches for a path along the way. Water tumbles iron until it dissolves into dust; It saturates the air, so that the wind dies. Water evades all resistance in a kind of deceptive modesty, but no power can prevent it from following its predetermined path to the sea - Water conquers through humility; It never attacks and still wins the last battle - The sage who makes himself like water is characterized by his humility; He acts through passivity, acts through non-action and thus conquers the world. These virtues of water and clouds are the virtues of a perfect Zen man, whose life is characterized by freedom, spontaneity, modesty, and inner strength, with the added power of adapting to changing circumstances without any effort or anxiety... (P. Kapleau)
