2022.01.21 17:22 WeirdBryceGuy The Cosmic Colosseum
He’d been minding his own business, eating a Philly cheesesteak with extra onions and green peppers, when he was kidnapped from his home via some sort of trans-spatial portal. After a dizzying and kaleidoscopic passage through sub-dimensional voids and ultra-cosmic lacunae, he came to find himself unceremoniously and nakedly imprisoned, his hands bound before him; forced to kneel in a puddle of inky slime. Behind him stood his jailer, a tripodal creature armored in a thick black carapace, its head-mounted weapon aimed at the back of his head; its somewhat robotic image muddily reflected in the puddle beneath him.
The cell, long, dank, and dimly lit, swarmed with insects, fat-bodied and vicious-sounding; some awaiting carrion, others feasting ravenously on the still living flesh of the other inmates—those who plainly lacked either the strength or sense to shrug away the pestilential swarms.
One by one, the imprisoned were called forward by a booming voice from beyond the containment area, wherein they eerily disappeared in a harsh white light. When his name was called, he was hoisted to his feet before he could make the effort to stand himself, and was forcefully pushed forward into the blinding rectangle beyond.
He emerged into a vastly spacious and seemingly roofless room, a massive stadium of some kind; the audiences peopled by infinitely strange beings, bearing both semi-human and indescribably inhuman forms. Among there were entities he vaguely recognized from the mythological texts and folkloric lore of Earth, and he surmised that these fae-like and elven entities had perhaps been, during clandestine visits to Earth, the inspirations for those creatures of ancient myth. The others, the more monstrous, were wholly unfamiliar, and he found himself grateful that nothing of their ilk existed in any historical or fantastical form on Earth.
Around him, the other prisoners cowered pitifully, some even lying prostrate before a massive, wire-ringed stage in the center of the stadium. Plainly, he noticed, they had some idea of what was to come. His fellow prisoners were, like him, tightly bound, though the similarities ended there. Like the audience, they were markedly un-human, though not nearly as bestially or abominably inhuman as the creatures shouting and roaring amidst the high-vaulted stands. He tried to communicate with a nearby prisoner, a tall, emaciated, blue-skinned creature that vaguely resembled a colossal phasmid, but the thing merely chirped insensately at him in response, and then went on to join the other creatures by the stage.
Suddenly, the crowd quieted, and a giant object began a slow descent from the ceiling. As it fell, he noticed a series of ever-shifting symbols on one of the digital screens affixed to each of its sides. Even though the symbols were unrecognizable, he understood their import—it was a countdown. An atmosphere of anxiety arose among the inmates, who had all been left to their own devices by their jailers. As the collective tension mounted, the other inmates began distancing themselves from one another, and finally he understood the reason for their abandonment in the massive stadium. Just then, the front of the raised stage lowered into an incline, and those nearest the stage quickly hurried up the ramp and onto the stage. He followed, begrudgingly.
Though the stage was much smaller than the general floor of the stadium, they all were able to stand at considerable distances apart from one another. All eyes rested on the screens of the diamond-shaped object and the dwindling shapes. When, in a moment of breathlessness and near palpable tension, the symbols disappeared from the screen, all eye then dropped; his own landed on the “person” beside him, which happened to be the phasmid-like entity. Around them, the unwholesome spectators came alive again in a burst of collective activity; shouting and hollering and bleating and roaring in a hysteric frenzy of alien excitement. At once, with a seamless mechanical simultaneity, the thick irons unclasped themselves from the wrists of the prisoners and fell heavily to the floor of the stage.
While before it had been a chittering, unexplainably anxious mess, the towering insect was now cryptically quiet and malignantly postured. With one of its knife-edged pincers, it pointed at him, chirped out something—possibly an insult—and then, in a gesture that was plainly meant to be hostile, clapped its deadly hands together. In response, he raised and casually shook a loosely curled fist, fairly unintimidated by the giant insect-thing's performance.
The others, he noticed out of the corner of his eye, were in varying stages of a similar confrontational demonstration, though none had yet actually physically engaged each other. His comparatively dispassionate response was nonetheless well-received by his apparent opponent, who chirped approvingly and hunkered down, poised to strike.
Not one to back down from a challenge, he did the same, bending his knees and squaring himself, with his arms raised outwards—ready to grapple with the much larger foe. At this, the crowed seemed to enter into a near volatile ecstasy of amusement, as if the mere anticipation of the coming combat was enough entertainment for them. Ignoring the crowd, lest his senses be overwhelmed by the wild and incomprehensible clamor, he narrowed his eyes and focused on the creature before him. His insectoid foe performed another antagonizing gesture, and he readied himself accordingly; but no blow followed the provocative motion of the pincers; no slash or strike came crashing or slicing toward him.
Confused, he let out a low, guttural growl—something he considered appropriate for the occasion—and at this the crowd again exploded into a choral frenzy. The other combatants turned from their own posturing to look at him; he felt their many, many eyes resting on him as he barked out another taunt to his foe—who actually recoiled away, as if struck by the very sound waves. All who witnessed this went wild, and the true purpose of the event finally dawned on the man.
They were not expected to fight, but to perform; to strut and posture and exhibit bravado, but there was no expectation of the trading of blows. He found himself enraged by this realization, filled with an indignant fury at having been kidnapped, brought to some gladiator-style event, and then expected to refrain from letting loose his frustrations with physical violence.
Unwilling to be an actor in a play—he'd never been one for theatre—he decided to drop the act, and actually strike his opponent. Forgoing all ceremony, he leapt at the tall, gangly creature, grabbing it by the stalk-like neck, and using his own body weight he brought the thing teetering over. They both fell to the ground, and with the nimbleness and dexterity of his mammalian species, he quickly mounted the chest of the creature, and began pummeling it in its ugly bug face.
The crowd went deathly silent at this, and those of the other pretend-fighters who had drawn closer now scurried, slithered, and scuttled away; horrified by the exhibition of sincere and barbarous violence.
As his fists rained blow after mighty blow, turning the once bulbous head into a pulpy blue mess, he opened his mouth wide in a deep, primal roar.

2022.01.21 17:22 Serenarosef Is it time to leave?
I met my boyfriend when I was 22 & really trying to stabilise my life. He is nearly double my age & I didn’t expect us to fall “in love”, but he pushed me to move in with him, so I did & then I found out that he had an “ex” fiancé, all her stuff was in a box at his place, they had joint accounts still open, photos, cards and received her mail daily. He had an excuse for EVERYTHING, so I trusted him and stayed. It got to the point where a year down the line I had to ask him to get rid of their computer with their accounts on it and to delete photos and videos of her on his phone - he still keeps his phone locked and only ever by his side.
He’s treated me pretty badly emotionally, but given me everything else (stability, holidays, father figure, house, job) and I was SO in love with him. About a year ago (2 yrs after we met) I gave up trying to be okay with everything he put me through & tried to leave multiple times, every time he convinced me to stay & now, for the past 6 months, he’s been EXTREMELY loving, attentive, everything. But I am exhausted and don’t know if I can carry on. It doesn’t help that we have a house, dog etc… I’m just scared that I’m 25 now and might miss my chance to be with someone who’s genuine & could reciprocate my love from the beginning, if I don’t make a decision on staying / leaving. I can’t help but be angry that he ruined everything in the beginning of our relationship, which makes me want to leave.

2022.01.21 17:21 raggamuffin1357 Praise for "Sacred Illusion: On Purity and Creation in Je Tsongkhapa's Philosophy of Tantra" by Dr. Eva Natanya Rolf
I am just so enthralled by this book and I wanted to share it (available for free download here).
The first half of the book investigates Je Tsongkhapa's understanding of karma and emptiness. The second half of the book applies that to the question of how karma and emptiness might function in a practitioner's development in the generation stage of tantra.
This is my second time through the 800+ pages of this thoughtful and clearly written dissertation. It addresses every question I've ever had about emptiness, karma, and tantra, and it poses new questions I never could have put into words or even imagined. I am just so grateful for this adroit scholapractitioner. I hope that you can benefit from this book as much as I have if the topic interests you.
