One may question if I am really seeing through this grand illusion at all with recent posts in my main blog. While I agree with my teacher that the song,"Row Row Row Your Boat" is one of the highest spiritual teachings, yes, at other times even though it seems absurd on any absolute formless sense, as a human, as Ramana Maharshi says, you weep with the weeping.
This has reminded me with these words by Chogyam Trungpa which I refer to over and over again:
"Traditionally, there are three types of generosity. The first one is ordinary generosity, giving material goods or providing comfortable situations for others. The second one is the gift of fearlessness. You reassure others and teach them that they don't have to feel completely
tormented and freaked out about their existence. You help them to see that there is basic goodness and spiritual practice, that there is a way for them to sustain their lives. That is the gift of fearlessness. The third type of generosity is the gift of dharma (the teachings). You show others
that there is a path that consists of discipline, meditation, and intellect or knowledge. Through all three types of generosity, you can open other people's minds. In that way their closedness, wretchedness, and small thinking can be turned into a larger vision." - from Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness, edited by Judith Lief
