But somehow the faith I had before disappeard. Maybe because I dont trust people that had not struggle in life. Always happie. I dont trust. Anyone like that.--------N: Good, that shows the anattaness of dhammas. So, we can learn from any sitution.-------->N: But I know a different Lukas when we were on our last trip Jan. 2013. You were helping me with luggage and in other ways. I reminded you of your kusala, remember? You were feeding the >fishes, having more sympathy with them than before when you liked fishing.L: Conventionally, You remember this Lukas, cause you saw my defensive mode. This all Lukas so nice, this is camouflage.---------N: There are different moments all the time, because of different conditions. That is why I said: a different Lukas. Cittas are different all the time.--------L: I remember Bhante Dhammadharo: Citta has a problem, not you.L: I dont do it on porpouse, this comes on its own.------N: Very good. We do not think ahead of time: I should help this person. Citta with metta just arises and you just help. Only a moment. It does not belong to us. No need to think much about it.---------L: This is how my psycho defends me. I cannt do anything about that. When I am kind, no one harms me. This is a deeply rooted on subconsious level. But this is not me. I have also fighting mode, but this scares even me.--------N: Good, well said: this is not me. You are learning about conditions and about the fact that dhammas are beyond control. I remember on the last trip that you said that good friendship was so helpful to you.L: Sometimes only. But this is gone. I dont remember. The point are very strong akusala, to the level of akusala kama-patha. Some 'bad boys' I used to know says 'What doesnt kill you make you stronger', but this is not like that, cause any new day struggling with akusala, makes mind weaker and weaker. I burnt exactly 7 years ago.Best wishesLukas
- Hi Alex, ... ... S: So is the person made from 5 khandhas more khandhas or something else? What experiences through all 6 ayatanas ? Person or 5 khandhas?Message 55 of 55 , Oct 8, 2013View Source
>S: Who is this person? Which khandha is the person? Which doorway is the person experienced through?
>A:Person is made from 5 khandhas working together and experiences through all 6 ayatanas.
S: So is the "person made from 5 khandhas" more khandhas or something else?
What "experiences through all 6 ayatanas"? Person or 5 khandhas?
Please define in terms of dhammas what these 6 ayatanas you are referring to are.
