Whatever the specifics of a man’s purpose, he must always refresh the transcendental element of his life through regular meditation and retreat. A man should never get lost in the details of his life and forget that, ultimately and in truth, life amounts to nothing other than what is the deepest truth of this present moment. Tasks don’t get a man anywhere more conscious or free than he is capable of being in this moment. — David Deida
I recently returned from beautiful Lyon, France, where I worked for a month. It was great to be in France again and I look forward to returning in May. I stayed in a renovated apartment in a 16th century building (in historic Vieux Lyon, a UNESCO world heritage site). It had a unique staircase, which was built without a core.
Here are some photos that I took during my stay:
Rest in peace Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche and Rick Best. They gave their lives in the noblest of ways– to protect innocent people against hatred and intolerance on a commuter train. My sincere condolences to their families and friends.
Get well soon Micah Fletcher! You put your life on the line for right and good.
We must all oppose hate and intolerance in our communities. There is no such thing as being neutral in the face of such immorality.
