Catching the Yum-Yum Bus

Nasir Chang wrote: I'd like to be able to share something from my level of understanding, but everytime I think to write, I can't write anything, because the last thought was this; "What for? all the people here are wiseful, more experienced and already knew what it is." My mind said intellectual explanations/words are useless here and also there. And guess what? I still can't do something or live this life appropriately with what I've known as the truth. I say to myself, "If you are not able to do things as what you say, then shut up!!" I have problem with my brain, it can't stop thinking, and that make me sick... Oops, my mind come to "Nothing to say" again...

There is great wisdom here Nasir! Satsangh needs nothing! But you give your presence. You remind me of Lao-tzu when you talk about saying nothing. Personally I find the ordinary stories of ordinary people like you and me who
struggle sometimes a lot more interesting and inspiring than the tales of 'fully finished selfrealised saints'. We are human with our quirks and diversity and foibles and imperfections, that's what's perfect about us, what makes us interesting and fun. Our stories. Of joys and sorrows, successes and failures, sometimes we can't tell one from the other, we never know how things turn out in the end til we're there. If we need to have a reason for being born and living here in this beautiful world, then the best one I can come up with is for our stories, of the course of our lives, never knowing what lies on the next page or the next line. So sometimes we have nothing to say, sometimes we have something to say, sometimes something to be sorry about sometimes not. Until we tell our stories we cannot know what people will think of them, something we may think rivial someone else may find inspiring, and when we tell them we get back reactions which help us in our own understanding. Having nothing to say is a story too. But don't think that what you say is of no interest, things that seem boring and mundane to you may be of great interest to others. Something about where you live for example, the sights and smells when you walk down the street. I live on the east coast of Canada, in a rural place, as I write, out my window there is a cherry tree and a hillside covered with spruce trees. I can see my vegetable garden, I put up a fence around it this year to keep the deer out. Peas and potatos and tomatos are growing well this year, something ate most of my pepper plants. This evening for dinner my wife and I might go down to the beach and buy some fish and chips from someone who sells food out of an old bus there called the "Yum Yum Bus". We'll drive down the beach and park the car and sit and watch the sunset over the hills, or take the dog for a walk. I would be interested in reading such ordinary trivial things about your life.
