I added 2-1/2 cups of water, and the coco puffed up to not quite fill the flowerpot. Just enough room left, to add the amaryllis bulb and leave about 1/3 of it uncovered.
Wow. That was easy and not messy. No muss; no fuss.
The Four Noble Truths are a telegram of the Buddha's deeper teachings.
1. Dissatisfaction (dukkha) exists.
2. The cause of discontent is craving and attachment.
3. Dissatisfaction can cease.
4. The 8-fold Noble Path is the way.
When we start to unpack them, they expand into a hologram of teachings.
But for now, let's just admire the compactness of this telegram. When we water it with meditation and attention, our understanding will expand.
The coco disk was compact. And then, when i added water, it grew.
