ENLIGHTENMENT?


Friends, this wonderful picture is called 'ENLIGHTENMENT.' It refers to a state whereby one eventually achieves a clear, truthful, peaceful view of the world and one's relationship to it and to other life forms. Buddha is said to have achieved it after years of meditating and sitting under a Bodhi tree.

I think I'd have to sit under a Bodhi tree for many millenia to make any sense of it all.

Sadly, Daniel, there is no sense to insanity. I doubt if even the Buddha could make sense of what is hapening in the world today.

Yet so many of those who are insane occupy positions of real power, Worried. Some of them were even voted into office. Seems ironic.
