I only hear my neighbor's dog when I want to hear him bark. My mom complains
to close the bathroom window at night(only window to that neighbor) because
she can't sleep at night. I had major problems because of this focusing on something
that seems to disturb me, and I learned to be still, undisturbed by the comings
and goings of life, just like the sky is undisturbed by the clouds passing by. Nothing
can disturb me, I can only disturb myself.

Another one from Alan Watts :^^:

Common. Doing good work is doing bad work. Doingness happens
of its own. We just feel more comfortable to assume that "I did that".
A deer jumps in on the road and the car steers itself to not hit the deer.
Your compassion towards all of life makes that split second turn possible,
not any decision making, reacting. thinking about it or even seeing anything.
Its because of who you are things seem to arrange themselves into some
seeming order. But that's only perception. It has nothing to do with Reality.

No, i don't agree with that, Snow. All that we do, all that we act have an influence. I don't believe that things happens by themselves, all living beings, not only humans, have an influence on the others and on all that we call "world". If you are here, it's because your parents "did" you, if my daughter is here it's because me and her mother "did" her. If you like this philosopher or that painter, it's because they did something that touches you, it doesn't happens by itself or by a kind of "suprême willing". Life have an influence on life. Saying that things happens by themselves or because "it was written" is very confortable to clear ourselves about our own influence on all of it. We are actors, not spectators.

:mm1:


EDIT : I realize that my English is not rich enough for explaining all that i think, when we want to talk about such issues, it's a pity.
