Thoughts on the World Crisis
By Carol DeAntoni
We address life’s fundamental questions uniquely in each age, and this juncture that we are facing is so critical our questions need to be asked with the urgency and passion, with the renewed vigor only a crisis can engender. What is the substance and meaning of the world and what is the purpose of our life on Earth? What do we yet need to learn about our relationship with Nature, the universal intelligence governing this immense web of life?
A Talk from Wisdom's Goldenrod Summer Studies 2013
by Jeff Cox
The primary purpose of practicing meditation is to learn to focus the mind on a specific thought or object so that we can develop the concentration necessary for stabilization of the mind. Once the mind is stable enough, it becomes possible to make a sustained, penetrative inquiry to discover our true nature. With stabilization and sustained inquiry, it becomes more likely that there will be (through the blessed response of grace) a shift of our identity from the personality and body to the Overself—a permanent shift, not merely a life-transforming glimpse!
“’Not to be told; not to be written’: in our writing and telling we are but urging towards it: out of discussion we call to vision: to those desiring to see, we point the path; our teaching is of the road and the traveling; the seeing must be the very act of one that has made this choice.”
Plotinus: On The Good, Or The One, VI-9-4
