four pointers

1. to close, you cannot see it

2. to profound, you cannot appreciate it

3. to easy, you cannot believe it

4. to good, you cannot accept it

these are sometimes given when you recieve dzogchen or mahamudra teachings...

I pinned them over my fridge, a help to use a vasana (eating because Iam bored..) into remembering who good  ;)

Whenever a thought occurs, ask for whom this thought?  To me.
will be the answer.  Ask who am I?  The thought goes off.  If
it reappears again after some time or days, again use the same
process.  There is nothing like good and bad at all.   Both are
contextual and not absolute.  When I shoot a person on the road,
I am sent to jail.  A solider can shoot many of the enemy forces
and will get Veer Chakra award.  The Upanishad speaks about a
brahmin, who is dead hungry and he finds a horse-rider on the road.
The horse rider gives him some horse-grams.  He eats and says
You are my life giver.  This brahmin would not touch raw horse-grams
on any other day.

Arunachala Siva.
