"In the post-meditative experience become a child of illusion" is a slogan from the Tibetan mind training tradition. We engage the world as we experience it all the while realizing that reality is not as it seems to be.
My son-in-law, an EMT, was assigned to work with the Secret Service when Obama came to his city during the primaries. He came away very impressed with the man. Obama made a point of personally thanking him for "having his back". Later in the event Obama saw him, remembered him, and stopped to talk with him.
That's a wonderful story. Thanks for telling us, StacyAnn!
