The 3 poisons again! Hehe!
Greed; Aversions - Anger & Hatred; Ignorance!
Let's remember that Zen patriarch, Hui Neng, said: All Thoughts Are Evil!
Let's also remember some of GM's statements like the following:-
一心不乱 A Heart Unaffected by Any Factors resulting in Chaos;
如如不动 Immovable by any factors;
无心道人 A practitioner on the Path without a Heart = Mind;
自他互换 Mutual exchange of Status;
放下解脱 Letting go to break free.
Why do you get angry?
Mostly due to Perception of Loss of Sentient Possession which you Marked as Yours and Solely Yours, agree?
This Sentient Possession includes Your Face! :)
Now, let go to the story of Hui Neng, our Zen Patriarch.
He has to run away and hide from Shen Xiu, the Big Dharma Brother of the temple, who thinks that he has a right to the succession of Abbot, after his Guru the current abbot passes on.
However, in Buddhist assemblies, the successor is picked by the current abbot, who usually select his successor on certain criteria and most important, the Level of Cultivation of this "crown-prince"! :)
Can this successor propagate Authentic Buddha Dharma?
Can he use Buddha Dharma to benefit all beings?
In Buddhism, "crown-prince" is not determined by birth as in First Born, nor being the First or eldest disciple!
Crown prince in Buddhism needs Enlightenment and All Buddha's attributes like infinite wisdom and compassion.
The Anger and Hatred of Shen Xiu arose from Ignorance and Greed, agree?
He has yet to understand or be truly enlightened to Hui Neng's level.
Remember though, your anger whether in thoughts or actions, created Negative Karma which You are solely responsible for!
People with bulging eyes came into my vision just now!
Common signs and symptoms of Graves' disease include:
A rapid or irregular heartbeat
A fine tremor of your hands or fingers
An increase in perspiration or warm, moist skin
Sensitivity to heat
Weight loss, despite normal eating habits
Enlargement of your thyroid gland (goiter)
Change in menstrual cycles
Erectile dysfunction or reduced libido
Frequent bowel movements or diarrhea
Bulging eyes (Graves' ophthalmopathy)
Thick, red skin usually on the shins or tops of the feet (Graves' dermopathy)
About half the people with Graves' disease show some signs and symptoms of a condition known as Graves' ophthalmopathy. In Graves' ophthalmopathy, inflammation and other immune system events affect muscles and other tissues around your eyes. The resulting signs and symptoms may include:
Dry, irritated eyes
Gritty sensation in the eyes
Pressure or pain in the eyes
Reddened or inflamed eyes
Limited eye movements, resulting in a fixed stare
Blurred or reduced vision (rare)
Ulcers on the cornea (rare)
Karma of an individual actually brings about illnesses MATCHING to their Karmic Negative Levels!
That's why some of them take on looks of beings from the 3 lower realms!
How to manage your Anger?
Use the 4 Noble Truths first.
Seek out the Origin of this Anger and resolve it.
Bearing in mind that any action on your part to appease this anger with Vengeful action to the detriment of anyone, creates great negative karma, which you are solely responsible for, whether this life or the subsequent ones, till you fully pay up!
Easiest abd fastest, is to think: Do I want to be like this and accumulate more karmic debts that bog me down infinitely?
When you answer, NO! You can halt your vengeful thoughts and won't put any into actions!
Trust me, Your Face, is not worth suffering in Hell infinitely till you are rehabilitated! :)
O! My birthday happened to be the same as Zen Patriarch Hui Neng, & I do wonder, Is that why I am persecuted by Core's chairman and team?
Please reflect upon all your actions against Lotuschef to date, have you gain anything from your hostile and ignorant actions?
How many times must I state that I am not interested in any sentient title or throne?
