      SU GANDOLF

      Watching Joseph Campbell on PBS. He says when he learned
      about the concept of Sat-Chit-Ananda, he realized he was not
      sure about Sat or Chit, but that he got Ananda. He figured if
      he stuck with what he knew to be his "Ananda", he would get
      to the other two. And did.

      Gary Merrill: ... who cares
      whether enlightenment exists or not?
       

      Yeah, isn't that the question:  "Who cares?"

      That type of question is most instructive: a who can't be shown.
      Before birth, during life of a mind-body, after it's demise -
      what these seemingly 3 phases have in common is that they are
      but a series of events, put in a box with the frame of reference
      called "a mind-body". And when that box is blown apart, only a bigger
      box shows up, contained in a still bigger box, ad limitum :)
      What would the boxes have in common?

      Only one person really knows how to play ping-pong
      Or ride a horse
      Or make tea

      Only one person can appreciate how food tastes
      Or perform mathematical computations correctly
      Or read and understand this posting

      Only one person at a time, actually
      While all have the capacity
      It travels between people

      A fixed body of perceptions
      Shared by all
      In a rotational schedule

      That is why there is always a champion
      Always a loser
      And always a chance

      The same with 'enlightement'
      Spread the word about the best tea
      Spread the word about the most excellent enlightenment

      Recognize the possibility
      So that when it is your turn
      You can have it for a moment

      Publicize the possibility
      Advertise the reality
      Because as we know from experience

      100 people can drink the best tea as a group
      All appreciating the taste seemingly together
      This points out the speed of the rotational schedule

      So it is not a matter of having and possessing anything
      It is a matter of being open to sharing what is
      And that is enlightenment.

                  take it off
                  take it off
                  gently and sweetly
                  disrobe
                  one concept at a time or fling
                  off the whole body-mind-world idea
                  all at once
                  in reckless abandon
                  but please please take it all off
