Recently, one of my relatives stated 'never lose your sense of humour'. Well, goodluck on that one, because no one puts laughter in you, its already there! Just take a look at the "Laughing Baby' video on the homepage of this website. So where does this 'inner child' experiencing go? Or does it too, appear covered over at times? Sometimes a joy for no reason, an innocence beyond the apparent external attachments and aversions.
So what is Bumpa-Snallions?
Bumpa-snallions was a game played as kids in the lounge room amongst all the overturned furniture. You had to place a rug over your body and pretend you were a snail, except we were minus the little antennae so there was no sight. If you bumped into another snail, you were 'out'. Usually there were no sounds .... !!
As siblings grow up they tend to go their separate ways, and one of these siblings met with some adversity along the way which resulted in releasing much of the past emotionality around some intimate relationship trauma experienced as a young adult. An opportunity for unraveling the Buddha mindset one might say. It seems this Buddha mindset must be within many, and lets hope it does not take adversity to inspire its discovery by each from within, an unraveling of what appears to be covering it over.
So if ever you feel in victim mode, or the odds are against, just know that always beneath and beyond, deeper within.... the Buddha mindset awaits an unravel ling for who you truly are. That is, you're not your emotions that come and go, the story of past that was done, you're really that unlimited nature upon which it appears.... just the same as the movie of life is played upon the clear 'buddha' background, movie screen, awareness of that story. If there were no 'movie screen' or that Buddha mindset to teach upon, there would be no "Bumpa-snallion" tales for which to tell, or no movie to be seen, as there is no screen for it to be played upon.
You can be free with mind and beyond mind, its up to you "Freedomind". It's really about the external discovery with the internal discovery and sometimes it has been the internal discovery that has been ignored simply because it was not known 'how to' discover 'what's within?'. Now is the perfect time to notice this Buddha mindset, with and beyond the joyous tales of the past such as the 'bumpa-snallions' that were, if you are open to it !!
