daily dharma (‘some of the dharma’ pages 5-8)

Where we go from the question of age to the nature of the Mind then Marijuana, Helen Keller and views on religion.

I feel age as defined by time spent living is a flawed concept. Unless disease or an accident causes alterations a person’s Mind can remain the same forever. Strip away everything untrue or unnecessary and try to discover the “original mind”?

Drugs can serve a purpose in this quest but apparently it isn’t the best way to get there.

Helen Keller understood the true essence of something because her senses didn’t provide her with distractions.

Religion. Pretty much comes down on all of them as corruptions of some original true Vision.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
