There is only one goal. That is to be whole again.

There is only one goal. That is to be whole again. How human beings live and work determines whether they remain whole or are split. ...

The trick is to find our selves when our upbringing, our society, works to create a false self.

This false self values status, believes that we are our bodies and nothing more, and blindly follows religion (falsely called) whether that of an organized kind or of science.

We are programmed to reproduce the values and material expression of modern society, of industrialism and consumerism.

That we are not our bodies at all is banished from the set of possibilities. That we are not separate individual beings is a thought that is considered 'backwards'. How do we dare go against the idea of 'progress' - that imaginary linear march of conquest of human proclivities?

For the most part we don't. While the most political action in reality would be to meditate we waste our precious moments of life supporting certain causes and fighting others.

None of these actions ends suffering. None of these actions, our very lives, recognize us as the wondrous powerful beings that we are. That we are energy, that we are capable of profound insights about life, insights that lead to the evolution of human consciousness.

And so I find myself at the end of my life profoundly disappointed.
