Thank you for the clairification. Nice to meet you. I have never met a Rabbi before. What does it say under your name in Hebrew?
Welcome to the forum.

The Hebrew reads HaRav Yonah Ben Z'karyah - Rabbi Jonah son of Zechariah - which is my Hebrew name.

You're one of the few people who haven't asked me if, based upon my screen name, I am actually a rabbi. To be clear, yes I am.

Why wouldn't you be One? It seems very clear to me. Now I will be having one of my theosophy group lessons. Have a nice Day. :)

The "monkey mind" is a simile for the mind untrained by Buddhist discipline, including but not limited to meditation. It is found in Buddhist scriptures, said to go back to the Buddha himself.



The robes indicate renunciation of householder life - these are homeless people. The robes were originally sewn together from discarded scraps of cloth and dyed a uniform color using whatever dye was available - the forest monks mentioned by @_Hermes_ still sometimes use the marrow of a certain tree, yielding brownish dye. Maroon, any saffron yellow are also common. Some colors are explicitly disallowed in the monastic rules.



Interesting! A group of Chaos Magicians I associate with use the following eight color meanings (not in any order, Chaos Magic being fiercely anti-authoritarian):

Octarine – Magic
Black – Death
Blue – Wealth
Green – Love
Yellow – Ego
Silver – Sex
Orange – Thinking
Red – War

thank you Cino for your reply. Again a short story, a memory of mine of times before this universe became something here. I am floating inside a room looking down at a man working. This man is teaching this child colors indicated on a machine. I can make out some of the thoughts but not everything is clear. The thoughts of programming find thoughts in my mind today, my thoughts and those thoughts together. The man moved to another location a place were there was nothing, darkness all around except for me and him, ancient is my thoughts here, the end of their time is close. The man was seeking thoughts of immortality and more time.

So many thoughts could have time here but the thing I remember the most is the small child and the programmer teaching the child these colors that I believe are the frequencies of the existing timelines. These thoughts did not seem like magic but the attempts of a dying universe trying to figure itself out in its last dying breaths.

the interesting thoughts here are, that I did not figure these minds out until they were becoming nothing there. My mind is older then this universe and I find time when nothing becomes itself here and this is why I am here. This universe is young so the question to me is why is nothing figuring itself out? Why is nothing here?

when I close my eyes I have minds teaching me things. I can see and go just about any where that they are teaching me. Understand no person on this planet is inside themselves you are all yourselves and not herselves and himselves only. From the time we are in the womb we are taught inside yourselves to become yourselves here first instead of himself or herself here first. The reason for mentioning this is to explain why images in dreams and meditation are so difficult to translate.

my questioning here was to understand the monks better, a group of people that spend endless hours in mindfulness meditation seems to me they would be able to figure things out all the time. Monks should share common thoughts for their minds should figure each other out all the time, teaching each other things. What do they see when they close there eyes? How connected are there actions around each other? I could ask a hundred questions here out of curiosity.

again thank you for your time.
