The Real Ones

I had a very brief email exchange with someone who also grokked the delusion of enlightenment. We exchanged a couple of emails, that is all, because there was really nothing to say, just like in Jed's analogy of vampires or butterflies who have nothing to say to one another upon meeting. I have to note … Continue reading The Real Ones

Ode To Mediocrity

Well, ladies and gentlemen.. you know those films about a born genius who seems to be shunned by the masses at first, but he/she overcomes the little handicaps of own brilliance and initial rejection and triumphs, with the previously sniggering crowds suddenly falling at the feet of the newly-established and proven talent?

Seeking Is Endeavour Of The Privileged

I once expressed it somewhere that the modern day phenomenon of spiritual 'search', in the way it takes place in attending satsangs, in reading books, in involved online exchanges, in following this 'guru' or that 'guru', in banding up together into little communities - is the endeavour of the privileged and the well-fed. The hungry … Continue reading Seeking Is Endeavour Of The Privileged
