"In separateness lies the world's great misery,
in compassion lies the world's true strength."
- The Buddha

The One-State Vision and Foundational Principles of a Republic in Historic Palestine is imperative to dissolve the Jewish state of Israel. Such a state, which has no basis other than a fascistic narrative constructed out of paranoia and mythology, has
 no legitimacy in our world. It embodies all of the characteristics that humanity has resoundingly rejected in the last century - colonialism, racism, ethnic cleansing,
 apartheid and genocide.. ~ Us vs Them: On the Meaning of Fascism, by Roger Tucker

Spirituality in the Age of Ego

Spiritual interest is coming out more strongly in people now because of the character of this century: the river of materialism has overrun its banks. Not only are there endless gadgets and machines, but there is pervasive spiritual materialism under which the great traditions have become just so much milk in the marketplace. The current century is the age of ego.
~ The Collected Works of Chögyam Trungpa: Volume Nine, page 708

Know this life to be like a dream.
See the mind's unborn nature.
Aspire to be of benefit to others.
Khenpo Tsultrim Gyatso Rinpoche

 If we could become someone else, or halfway someone else, that would provide us with a tremendous number of sidetracks and possibilities for escape. We should be thankful that we have a body, a culture, a race, and a country that is honestly ours, and we should relate with those. We can’t reject all that. That represents our relationship to the earth as a whole, our national karma, and all the rest of it. That seems to be the starting point for attaining enlightenment, becoming a buddha.
 ~ Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
