In the Catholic Christian calendar there are back to back celebrations of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. To end war I propose an international, ecumenical, interreligious, multicultural feast and celebration of the Human Heart of Earthly Existence, followed by equally universally celebrated feasts of The Heart of all Being, the Heart of All Sentient Beings, the Heart of Coming-to Being, and, finally, the Heart of Ancestors Once-in-Being.
When we acclaim the "Immaculate Heart of Mary," we likewise acclaim the Immaculate Hearts Of All Attempting Awareness So As To Alleviate Suffering In The World.
Or, "I HO AAA SAT AS IT W."
To cling to oneself as Buddha,What is between the inward view and the outward view?
Oneself as Zen or the way,
Making that an understanding,
Is called clinging to the inward view.
Attainment by causes and conditions,
Practice and realization,
Is called the outward view.
Master Pao-chih said, “The inward view
And the outward view are both mistaken.
- Pai-chang (720-814)
Compassion and the Individual:"ETA," or, "equally to all."
Whether people are beautiful and friendly or unattractive and disruptive, ultimately they are human beings, just like oneself. Like oneself, they want happiness and do not want suffering. Furthermore, their right to overcome suffering and be happy is equal to one's own. ...When you recognize that all beings are equal in both their desire for happiness and their right to obtain it, you automatically feel empathy and closeness for them.
Through accustoming your mind to this sense of universal altruism, you develop a feeling of responsibility for others: the wish to help them actively overcome their problems. Nor is this wish selective; it applies equally to all.
- The Dalai Lama, Compassion for the Individual
What's our "eta" (estimated time of arrival) to "ETA" (equally to all)?
"What Is" presents "Itself" equally to all.
Is this why so many of us find it difficult to experience God?
Is this why so many of us find it difficult to love God?
Is this why so many of us find it difficult to dwell as God dwells in this existence?
I've found a solution to war.
Q: What is it?
A: Find your heart!
Yes, do this. (We "do this" when we "what-is" something. To "what-is" something or someone is to allow their true nature to be seen through, that is, we "God-view-it." We "Allow-God-God's-way-in-and-through-it.")
Be immaculate -- do not contain flaw or error. Of course there are (what we call) flaws and errors in this existence. Let them go. They were meant to go. Then, let them. There's no need to contain. Open my heart. Open your heart. Let each error or flaw go. They will, you know. Go. That's what change is. Letting go...going on.
The more we change, the more we become what the heart becomes -- immaculate.
Dwelling in the open. That's how we become hermits.
In the desert. ("desert," from L.de- + serere, means "to join together.")
Be a hermit.
Dwell in the desert of the heart.
