The One-State Vision and Foundational Principles of a Republic in Historic Palestine


...it 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.
