Farts. No Pahpose anywhere in rife itser’f. When you drop fart you do not say, ‘At nine o’crock I drop fart.’ It just happen.

The importance of living without purpose.

.

Bodies become limited by illness, old age.

Ahhh, sweet non attachment. What can we do? Feel the joy not the suffering. Change perspective. It’s natural. 

.

Closing decades of medical practice, saying goodbye to so many amazing patients who have populated my life becoming friends, letting go of old furniture that became friends, like movies on a screen. Not real. Only that which is Infinite is Real. 

.

From Alan Watts Autobiography:

.

The importance of living without purpose, page 166, quoting a Buddhist master:

.

“He came to a passage where the sutra spoke of the importance of living without purpose, and true to his accent, commented: In Buddhism pahposessness is fundamental’. No Pahpose anywhere in rife itser’f. When you drop fart you do not say, ‘At nine o’crock I drop fart.’ It just happen.”

.

By this time page 190, he has taught that we don’t have to struggle to be conscious this moment of the infinite self, conscious of nothing external. Just be this infinite now, we don’t have to work at it…..and by extension I don’t have to repeat “Who am I?” or say “I am.” I can if it helps, but I can leave off and BE.

.
I can just BE. Effortlessly. In silence. No thoughts. Like nature, beautifully expressed. 

.

Of himself he

“remembers all too much foolishness. Yet how can I forgive anyone else if I don’t forgive myself? And how can I believe that now, as I have become and matured, I am no longer a fool? If “judge not that you be not judged” means anything, it means that we must look at human affairs, including our own, as we look at nature.”

.

In the scene of spring there is nothing inferior,
nothing superior;
Flowering branches grow naturally, some short, some long.

“Our deeds, our feelings, our thoughts, and our sensations just happen of themselves, as the rain falls and the water flows along the valley. I am neither a passive and helpless witness to whom they happen, nor an active doer and thinker who causes and controls them.  “I” is simply the idea of myself, a thought among thoughts. Taken seriously it gives the illusion of being something apart from nature, a subject reviewing objects. But if the subject is an illusion, the objects are no longer mere objects. Inside the skull and the skin as well as outside, there is simply the stream flowing along of itself. [emphasis mine] The bones flow too, and their inner texture has the same patterns as moving liquid. In nature there  are neither masters nor slaves.”
