The dead harp

All humans are intrinsically beautiful to me. Nobody has virtue. Nobody is to blame. There is no free will. Only suffering and well-being. All my thoughts are music from wind blowing thru a dead harp. It plays this thought and vibrates with the Universe. It whispers “compassion” and the word echoes where it will.

Beautiful thoughts, but why is the harp dead?

To hammer home to idea that there is nowhere to stand outside of the universe’s causal structure, and nobody to stand there. There isn’t a live subject observing life, there is only experience. Everything is dead. A sentient harp with free will would be a horrible thing. Death for such an object is mercy.

The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite.. ~MagsJ

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

Examine what is said, not him who speaks ~Arab proverb

aes Sanātana Dharma Pali: the eternal way ~it should not be rigid, but inclusive of the best of all knowledge for the sake of Ṛta.. which is endless.
