To Butcher or Not To Butcher

they insisted so i obliged. besides, what is there to lose? if i did not give it a try, it will be then that i lost something- the freedom from what ifs.

the chat actually went well. he was more assertive. analytical as well for that matter. plus, he spoke good english. but then, the "do you understand me?" sounded a little bit snobbish. typical of their race i think but overall, it is a development i believe. now, i do not want to throw away all my hopes for this guy but he could be. probably he can do it.

but all are prayers and hopes for a dream waiting to be butchered.

chöd literally means "cutting through", it's an obscure buddhist meditation practice: "External chöd is to wander in fearful places where there are deities and demons. Internal chöd is to offer one's own body as food to the deities and demons. Ultimate chöd is to realize the true nature of the mind and cut through the fine strand of hair of subtle ignorance. I am the yogi who has these three kinds of chod practice." (Thrangu Rinpoche)
