where consciousness ends

June 29, 2010

Get up from your meditation, your prayer at the temple,  your vedic chanting, your prostrations at the Guru’s feet. Slide on your shoes, grab your bag and go home. Slip off one shoe, slip off another. Toss your bag into the chair in the corner.

Your inert shoes, dirty, mere functional objects don’t deserve a fraction of the attention you would place in offering a garland of jasmine at your Guru’s feet. Or do they?

Where does consciousness end and ignorance begin?

    Cara Maria Luisa,
    Come va tutto? Stai preparando per ferragosto? Prendi un po di riposo, pausa? Spero che tutto sia bene, anche se fa caldo.
    Io sto bene, in India faccendo le mie cose che sono nutritive e curative. Ho sempre la collana che mi avete regalato viccino viccino il mio cuore. Un abbraccio, Raven
