"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.
Wise words indeed. I am so concerned about the direction of this country. How someone as inimical to the rights of workers as Scott Walker could win a recall election is beyond me. And our esteemed president did approximately ZILCH to help Barrett. The end result? He lost by an even wider marging than last time, and workers get the shaft again.What on earth is going on?--Bryan DougP.S. Thank you for providing me a place to vent, one of the many strengths of this blog.
Hi Bryan,I appreciate this blog for exactly the same reason you do..."a place to vent".There seems to be no answer to this ongoing dynamic we have seen demonstrated over time. What does continue to amaze me is that Helen Keller has authored such an articulate, prohetic and timeless assertion. when i think of the phrase, "there is none so blind as he who will not see", it now gives new and meaningful slant to the above quotation. It is difficult to live in a world with so much polarization. I find thatestablishing a meditation practice helps a lot...in case you haven't, i hope you will check out Ellie's meditation blog as well.best regards,annie
