The meaning of Going For Refuge for a Buddhist

I think it is important to understand that Going For Refuge is a profound inner experience for a person. When a person experiences this, then at that time they are a Buddhist.
It is an experience which is a very important thing to remember.
When you have this experience you naturally experience peace in your mind and life's roar, hassle and bustle

So, this is so nice to share with people - you can experience this wonderful private experience that protects you from so much of the worries, anxieties, stresses and depressions life has to offer.

The meaning of life

This is something one should not shy away from.
There may seem to be no time in your life to think about this subject.
Which brings to mind a different question - what do you have time in your life for?
Which then brings about another question - why is it that you have time for the things you have time for, but not for asking the simple question is there a meaning to life? and if there is a meaning to life what do I think it is? And why do I think that what I think the meaning life has or not is indeed the right answer?

These kind of questions are very worthwhile. They illuminate many things in one's life.
But they also bring about complications.
These kind of thinking are like Pandora's box - once opened you don't know what you're getting!

So be careful!

My Coffee life

This is a note about the new portafilter for my Presso Coffemaker.

So I have this coffee maker - Presso, (Rok in its modern iteration).
I really am happy to manage to buy it.
Took four years to find one at the right price from ebay.
When it arrived I tried taking the metal basket out from its housing in order to clean it, but it was not willing to come out and stupidly I concluded that there's no need for it to come out. Well I should have tried slightly more forcefully in order to get it out so that it could be cleaned better.
Not having cleaned it for a fear it caused corosion to form inside the portafilter - which houses the metal basket.
Now I bought a new portafilter - with no spout! the coffee comes out directly from the basket to the cup.
It is wierd and my initial try was only really half hearted. Tomorrow I will give it a better effort.

Note 71

First entry

Well - this is a first entry and I am interested to see what can be done with this blogging from your notes.

I will write daily??

And, I will put the various thoughts I have about various things to do with Buddha's teachings and life as I see it.

Hopefully something here will be interesting for people to read.
