Since Buddhism
is not a creed but a method,
one need not only 2 talk &/or write about
the dharma, like lots of Westerners do, nor does
one studies the dharma 4 ever & ever, like lots of
Westerners do, but put knowledge into purposeful
action 4 those texts are meant 2 be lived only,
unalike what lots of Westerners do.

The buddhist dharma
is a way of life & being & their texts
are not meant 2 be studied 4
they are just texts.

Study should
always be undertaken
out of interest &/or mental relaxation (!)
though predominantly 4 the sake of practice
or aborted &/or not done at all !

The buddhist dharma &/or
teachings are meant 2 be lived !

Mental strength isn’t reflected
in what one does but in what one
doesn’t do ! The dharma in actions or
in what one does & doesn’t do !

    Yes, philosophy is supposed to be lived, but that doesn’t mean it is impervious to examination. Examination gives it a more real weight and profound depth.
