Free Will....???!!!!

Too much to digest? Perhaps.... :)

"The purest doctrines, such as those of Ramana Maharshi, Padma Sambhava, Huang Po and Shen Hui, just teach that it is sufficient by analysis to comprehend that there is no entity which could have effective volition, that an apparent act of volition when in accord with the inevitable can only be a vain gesture and, when in discord, the fluttering of a caged bird against the bars of his cage. When he knows that, then at last he has peace and is glad. Non-volitional living is glad living. 'All Else is Bondage; Non-Volitional Living' - Wei Wu Wei...

Hi Nimmy,
I ran across your blog a week or so ago and liked the positive thoughts you shared. I had some time on my hands again today, it's a holiday in Canada, and used a bit of it to come around and have a second look. I still like the content. Thanks for sharing. I'll be back again.
