What are we missing in this world? Nothing and everything.
We are told that the kingdom of god is within us.
We are told that we all have our Buddha nature.
We are told that the Way is the way and that its lessons are simple and all around us in nature.
We are told these things in a hundred different ways as part of the spiritual experience of every culture and society
We are part of the perfection that is the universe
and we are given the freedom to contaminate that perfection
with ego and intolerance and righteousness and greed..
We know this, yet we do not know that we know it.
What can i do about it?
I can be selfless and tolerant.
But how can i do that
I can forget about whatever you are doing and focus on what i am doing.
I am meditating.
I am meditating in silence.
That is what we are missing in the world, the silence.
