    Imagine yourself as a child lying on your back, gazing up into a cloudless sky, and blowing soap bubbles through a plastic ring. As a bubble drifts up into the sky, you watch it rise, and this brings your attention to the sky. While you are looking at the bubble, it pops, and you keep your attention right where the bubble had been. Your awareness now lies in empty space.

    The atmosphere is no where near empty though. Over ten thousand pascals of atmospheric pressure.

    Childlike wonder is overrated. Alan Wallace is dumb.

    See why building faith on bad metaphors doesn't work?

    Carry on.

    Wouldn't letting it go take me off a list?

    I'm not going to argue though. You'll forgive me soon. I'm too huggable to stay mad at. [​IMG]

    let it go as in "you're not worth me getting upset over because you had some sort of pleasure in hurting me and hurting me more would only make you happy"

    blowing bubbles just happens to be one of my favorite things to do..

    i just never thought of it like that

    i should go blow some now... we have some called "catch-a-bubbles" and they're not soap.. they don't pop as easily.. we had one sitting on the picture frame in the front walkway for 2 weeks before it popped

    i can imagine doing that the next time someone foolishly leaves a bubble blower where i can get it.

    You HAVE to trust boog, or you will never find people you can trust.
    negative lessons are a bad plan, just stop being so tolerent of people who wrong you,

    Sounds exactly like what I do even at my age now, so I guess I don't even have to imagine being a child. ;)

    I love laying in the grass blowing bubbles, man, I can get so involved in it, watching the way the sunlight hits those little spheres of soapiness, making rainbows, it's awesome!
