Broomstik for the mind, this wicked mind

Broomstick for mind

This wicked mind, which is never to be trusted, should be broomsticked every morning with such warnings as, “Be not anxious to find fault with others, or to declare thyself a true sincere, bonafide bhakta, which certainly thou art not!” there is an adage to the effect that “para-carccakera gati nahi kona kale – a man who is habituated to criticize others conduct will never prosper!” Let others do whatever they like, I have no concern for them. I should rather find fault with my own damned mind and think like the Vaishnava mahajana [His father Thakur Bhaktivinode from Saranagati] who sings:

amara jibana,   sada pape rata
nahiko punyera lesa
para-sukhe duhkhi, sada mithya-bhasi
para-duhkha sukha-karo read more

US flag

By Charles Eisenstein (a vision of American nightmare by honest nondevotee).

Every culture has a Story of the People to give meaning to the world. Part conscious and part unconscious, it consists of a matrix of agreements, narratives, and symbols that tell us why we are here, where we are headed, what is important, and even what is real. I think we are entering a new phase in the dissolution of our Story of the People, and therefore, with some lag time, of the edifice of civilization built on top of it. read more
