KNOX REFERS TO THE PAINTING IN THE ATTACHMENT WHEN HE SAYS “BRILLIANT!”– NOT THE WORDS.


ALL WORDS ARE WORTHLESS, EVEN WITH THE BUDDHA’S VERY OWN.(THAT IS WHY HE ANNULS THEM AS SOON THEY COME ROLLING OUT OF HIS MOUTH.)


WHEN A COMMITTEE OF FOOLS PRAISE ANOTHER YOU KNOW THE PRAISE IS RELATIVE AND WORTHLESS. A SMART EXAMPLE IS THE NOBEL PRIZE AWARD,–AND TO AWARD A WARTIME PRESIDENT THE PEACE PRIZE,– WHAT FOOLS WILL DO THAT?

THE PRAISE OF A SINGULAR GENIUS, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS SOMETHING ELSE,–IT IS SOMETHING TRULY PRECIOUS FOR THE WORLD.

IT NEEDS TO BE THOROUGHLY UNDERSTOOD SO ONE MAY BE IN TOUCH WITH THE ABSOLUTE.

Subject: your masterpieces for auction and exhibition

Good Day Ben,

How are you doing? I just want to consult you as we will have a Gratitude Dinner to celebrate our 85/90th anniversaries on 13 Dec. It will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. We expect 1,000 attendees, mostly alumni and their families.

One of the programmes is an auction to raise fund for the 2 Wah Yans. In this regard, I would like to propose a masterpiece from Master Martin and you (2 pieces) as the highlight of the auction. I like the attached the best as I am a total layman. And I would like to start from US$1,500 and get US$4,000. Could I do that please? Also I need more bios from you for introduction at the auction.

Our alma mater is also planning for an exhibition at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre in April – May 2010. The object is to showcase our artistic talents in the past 85 years. ip address information I have sounded our wish to display your works there to the Organising Committee. They will allow 2-3 pictures as the space is limited and they have to accommodate other alumni at the same time. But we will put up your works and Master Martin’s works on our web as an alternative channel. Would you allow us to display your great works in April 2010 please?

Please enlighten me on these 2 proposed ideas next week and many thanks. Take care.

Best wishes,

Monty

TO HAVE VS.TO BE

Filed under: Uncategorized — MASTER BEN LAU @ 2:49 pm

FIGURE 1: CAT BEN LAU

“TO HAVE” MUST NOT BE CONFUSED WITH “TO BE.” THE ESSAY BELOW SERVES TO CLARIFY THIS TRAGIC CONFUSION IN THE POSTMODERN WORLD.

FIRST OFF, WRONG MEDITATION IS WORSE THAN NO MEDITATION AT ALL!


THE RIGHT MEDITATION WILL GET YOU THROUGH LIFE AS IF EVEN ONE TINY SECOND IS ETERNITY, ALTHOUGH IN THE ULTIMATE REALITY, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS EITHER ONE OR THE OTHER, — I.E. THERE IS NEITHER SUCH THING AS ” ONE TINY SECOND” NOR “ETERNITY”! THE MIND CONSTANTLY GIVES FALSE REALITY TO ITS OWN IMAGINING SO IT MAY HAVE AN ABODE AND A NAME. THE MIND NEVER FAILS TO INVENT WORDS OR TO SELF-BELIEVE IN THEM.

THE MIND PLAYS TRICK ON YOU AND INATTENTION IS THE NORM. INATTENTION IS NEVER THE EXCEPTION. WE ARE,– AS IF WE WERE,– ALWAYS CHEATED OUT OF OUR OWN AWARENESS.

SO ACCEPT THE NORM AS IT IS THEN. DO NOT FIGHT IT, SINCE IT WOULD BE FUTILE TO DO SO!
WHAT ONE CAN DO IS TO BE ACCEPTING AND PATIENT,– AS IF YOU CAN ONLY HIT THE ENEMY WHEN HE IS NOT WATCHING. THAT IS TO BE YOUR BATTLE PLAN SINCE YOU HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE.

WITH THIS KIND OF BATTLE, BEING PASSIVE ALWAYS CARRIES THE DAY. THERE IS TO BE A NEW STRATEGY, NAMELY, WATCH YOUR MIND INSTEAD! WATCH IT 24 HOURS A DAY IF YOU CAN. IT IS NOT A BURDEN. QUITE THE CONTRARY, IT IS THE BEAUTY, THE ULTIMATE THING TO DO IN LIFE TO BE ABLE TO WATCH YOUR MIND! WITH THAT WATCHFULNESS IN PLACE, YOU NO LONGER NEED TO WATCH THE TERRORISTS, OR IRAQ, OR OBAMA, OR NORTH KOREA, NOR SCHEMING CHINAMEN, ACADEMICS, POLITICIANS, BISHOPS, GURUS, DALAI LAMAS, GLOBAL WARMING, SNAKE OILS, ETC. THEY WILL ALL DISAPPEAR LIKE THE THINEST NAKED DEVILS FROM HELL!

YOU ARE THE TERRORIST WHEN YOUR MIND CANNOT BE BROUGHT UNDER WATCH.

THIS WATCHFULNESS SHOULD YIELD ALL THE BEAUTY IN HEAVEN, THAT IS,  WHEN YOU LEAST DESIRE IT. HEAVEN IS WHEN ALL DESIRES CEASE!

THE ALPHASEER HOPES YOU CAN START WITH THIS: ALL THINKING STINK, ALL THINKING ARE ENEMIES,– TO QUOTE KRISHNAMUTI. THEN LET’S ANNUL EVEN THAT BY NOT TAKING IT TOO SERIOUSLY, AS THE SUGGESTION IS THINKING,– IN AND OF ITSELF!
ONCE THE MIND IS INVOLVED IN DUALITIES, THINKING KICKS IN. WHEN THINKING IS, DIFFERENCE IS. WHAT IS DUALITY? GOOD/BAD, LONG SHORT, BLACK WHITE, MORAL/IMMORAL, KIND/ UNKIND,….

YOU ARE THOROUGHLY FUCKED WHEN DIFFERENCE IS.

TO HAVE MUST NOT BE CONFUSED WITH TO BE. THAT IS WHY ALPHA SEEING IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR EVERYONE SINCE THE ABILITY FOR ALPHA SEEING IS AN ATTRIBUTE, I.E. SOMETHING TO HAVE. ALPHASEERS, LIKE HAYDN, MATISSE OR KNOX MARTIN ,–FOR THEM ONLY, THEIR STATE OF BEING IS ALPHASEEING. IT IS AN ATTRIBUTE IN THEM, –THE ABILITY FROM NATURAL ENDOWMENT. NOW IF THEY HAD CHOSEN TO BE SOMEONE ELSE OTHER THAN ARTISTS, SAY, BANKERS, COPS, POLITICIANS OR ACADEMICS INSTEAD,THEY WOULD HAVE VIOLATED THAT BEING BIGTIME! THEY WOULD HAVE BECOME IMPOSTORS THEN, AND THEY WOULD PLAY THE FALSE ROLE WITH MEDIOCRE OR EVEN HARMFUL EFFECT.
TO HAVE IS A VERY CURIOUS THING INDEED! DOES IT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH A PERSON’S KARMA? I DON’T THINK THERE IS AN ANSWER TO THAT. TO PURSUE IT FURTHER IS SILLY: IT WOULD BE LIKE ASKING THE BIRDS WHY THEY CAN FLY, OR THE NEWTS WHY EAT WORMS.

HOWEVER, SEEING, OR ENLIGHTENMENT, OR SAMADHI, IS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYONE, AS THE BEING OF EVERY HUMAN PERSON IS THE SAME AS THE BUDDHA’S VERY OWN. WE ARE EQUAL AS WE ALL HAVE THE HUMAN FORM!

BUDDHA NATURE IS THEREFORE INHERENT IN EVERY HUMAN BEING. HUMANITY BEING THE BRIDGE TO ENLIGHTENMENT, A JUMP TO THE BEYOND. BECAUSE OF THAT, SEEING IS A DUTY AND A RARE OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL.

IT IS RARE TO ASSUME THE HUMAN FORM, ACCORDING TO THE GAUTAMA BUDDHA,–THAT IS PRECISELY WHY IT IS SUCH A RARE OPPORTUNITY!
THE ALPHASEER FORMERLY KNOWN AS BEN LAU
