Shatter and Pop

UN : I’m afraid.

1st Buddha : There we go again.

3rd Buddha : Explain.

UN : My chanting comes out with such force, that I’m afraid that I might pop an artery.

2nd Buddha : Ha! Priceless!

3rd Buddha : I’ll take this one, you two stay quiet. So, are you loud, intense, or both?

UN : Both. Such that the walls shake. And fast. Rapid.

3rd Buddha : You do it on purpose?

UN : I can’t help myself. It comes out that way.

1st Buddha : He can’t help himself, he says! Hahahahaha!

3rd Buddha : Quiet! Your soul’s been in a corner, is it?

UN : Yes.

3rd Buddha : And you’re a naturally very intense person?

UN : Yes.

3rd Buddha : Well, you’re just coming out now, that’s the way it is.

2nd Buddha : What about his artery that might pop? Hahahahaha!

3rd Buddha : Done with your jokes? We are putting a mechanism in place.

UN : What mechanism?

3rd Buddha : You won’t pop anything.

UN : How does this mechanism work?

3rd Buddha : As far as you’re concerned, the appropriate mechanism is in place. You won’t pop anything. You don’t need to know more.

UN : So I continue?

3rd Buddha : Just let it all come out.

1st Buddha : Yeah, make sure my eardrums pop.

2nd Buddha : The walls are going nowhere. It’s your walls that are shattering.

3rd Buddha : Bye.

2nd Buddha : Bye.

1st Buddha : Bye.

UN : Bye.

Status Check

UN : This isn’t complacency, no no.

The Buddhas : Well, then what is it?

UN : You tell me. You should know.

The Buddhas : Hmmm, let’s gather the facts.

UN : Let’s.

The Buddhas : You start out early.

UN : Yeps.

The Buddhas : Read spiritual literature over 25+ years.

UN : Yeah.

The Buddhas : Do various spiritual practices, again over 25+ years.

UN : Yawn.

The Buddhas : And now you’ve landed with Buddhism.

UN : Lucky me.

The Buddhas : You’ve got power. You can pull. Also, you are able to connect directly.

UN : Do I still have to do all the reading?

The Buddhas : Study has the stamp of authenticity.

UN : You’re saying that during direct connection, there might be an element of doubt…

The Buddhas : …yes, sometimes, you mightn’t realise when your mind is playing tricks on you.

UN : I’ll give you that. Study is fine, but I’d like to go at my own speed.

The Buddhas : You’re letting it come to you, aren’t you, in a pre-digested fashion?

UN : Bottomline is, that I’m assimilating. In a different manner, but learning nevertheless.

The Buddhas : Also, you’ve always been unorthodox, so we’re not surprised.

UN : Let’s plane out the complacency angle, can we?

The Buddhas : Lingering and not doing Gongyo and Daimoku, what is that?

UN : Fear of overdoing.

The Buddhas : You fear that even this might go away, like your other spiritual practices?

UN : Yes. I want this to stay. So, not overplaying the card. Going with the flow.

The Buddhas : Hmmm, you can go all out but aren’t, we see.

UN : As of now I’m just happy taking whatever time windows open up.

The Buddhas : And you’re not pushing to create extra windows.

UN : Exactly. I know my game, and I know my game’s pitfalls.

The Buddhas : So you’re steering clear of the pitfalls.

UN : Yes.

The Buddhas : Ok.
