Dear Britain…

September 30th, 2015 by Zen

Dear Britain,

Sometimes I look at my country, and I think it is the most ludicrous and uniquely degenerate place on earth. And then you go and do something … like … this.

I know our break up 2 centuries ago wasn’t really very amiable, but something in me appreciates your company, while we are both rotting and crumbling from the inside.

thanks,
Uncle Sam

One Kind of Good Life

September 29th, 2015 by G.

A well-ordered life, especially where the old are concerned, gives me the same pleasure as the fixed course of the planets.

-thus Pliny the Younger.  Me too.  Order is beautiful.  Order that isn’t beautiful isn’t order.

Thinking Like a God

September 28th, 2015 by G.

Bruce Charlton has a spiritual exercise from William Arkle that I found pretty simpatico.

 

Excerpt:

 

By trying to put ourselves in the position of the Creator whose nature is love and spiritedness, we may be able to draw conclusions which help us to understand and accept the situation on Earth as we find it at the present time.

Nothing says “Obama’s foreign policy is a flaming disaster” …

September 25th, 2015 by Vader

… like Israel turning to Russia for military coooperation.

It’s nearly as discouraging as the ascendancy of Trump.

A Mormon’s Faith from his Catholic Grandfather

September 25th, 2015 by G.

When I am tempted to take casually sacred things, I see my resolutely Catholic grandfather waking up very early in the morning to pray and read his bible, and my heart softens. My path, what I know, has taken me places my grandfather would not recognize, but I am here because of him.

 

thus Cort McMurray.  That sort of experience is foundational to the concept of the Tao, or the Way, that unites believers.  It isn’t just a convenient formula.  It’s a living reality.  We Wayfarers are simply recognizing something  that is.

Speaker Boehner to resign

September 25th, 2015 by Bertie

Speaker Boehner, they tell me, is out on his ear. Doubtless a surprise to the many-headed, but for those who are dashed savvy to the inner history of the contretemps with the tanning salon, the citrus drink, and my cousin Clara, this outcome was foreseen to be inev. I can’t say more, of course. Wouldn’t be preux. My lips are sealed like Solomon.
