"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.
I like this! We watched Mel Gibson's 'Passion of Christ' with the youth group last night, and it's struck me in ways it didn't the first time I saw it (in the theater back when it was released). If someone described Christianity based entirely on what they could learn about it from the media, I don't think it would resemble the teachings of Jesus in any way...and that's a scary thought.
You know, Maggie, I don't think the fundamentalists are at all interested in the teachings of Jesus. What they're interested in is their theory of substitutionary atonement.I agree. The picture we get of Christianity from the mainstream media is, shall we say, not at all comprehensive. And, yes, that's scary.
