No-nonsense Buddhas

Buddhas don’t practice nonsense.” Bodhidharma

How much of what we do has no purpose (sense)? All distractions fall into this category.

Nonsense also includes using words to conceal or confuse. He also said, “Freeing oneself from words is liberation.” As a Zen Buddhist, this is obvious. As a Christian, this is heresy. Goodbye, Christianity. Hello, silence and reality. I’ve been waiting for you.

About cdhoagpurple

I have an MBA, am married to a GM/UAW retiree with Huntington's Disease. I am more Buddhist than Christian. I plan on moving to Virginia when widowed. I have a friend''s parents that live down there and another friend living in Maryland. I am simplifying my life in preparation for the eventual move.Eight years ago, my husband had stage 4 cancer. I am truly "neither here nor there." My identity shifts and I am always surprised where I end up. 2015 was my hardest year ever. This is my Dark Night of the Soul. Welcome to it.
