Pearls of Wisdom regarding "Real" Community
| "Nobody has ever before
asked the nuclear family to live all by itself in a box the way we do.
With no relatives, no support, we've put it in an impossible situation."
-- Margaret Mead (Famous cultural anthropologist)
day will come when the idea of community will spread through the world.
Gather together those of you who share high ideals. Pool your resources.
Buy land in the country. A simple life will bring you the inner freedom.
Harmony with nature will bring you happiness and peace of mind known to
few city dwellers. In the company of other seekers of the truth
it will be easier for you to live in meditation and collective unity..
- Parmahansa Yogananda -- Indian Mystic
"When the Buddha reappears,
it will be as a community."
Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist Teacher
those who live in joy, who share joy,
and who spread joy."
Torkom Saraydarian - A Turkish spiritual
| "Eventually, meditation
will make our mind calm, clear, and as concentrated as a laser which we
can focus at will. This capacity of one-pointed attention is the essence
of genius. When we have this mastery over attention in everything we do,
we have a genius for life itself: unshakable security, clear judgment,
and deep personal relationships."
-- Eknath Easwaran was a spiritual teacher. For almost forty years, he taught Passage Meditation and his Eight Point Program as practical tools for living high ideals in the home and community.
"Enlightenment must come
little by little - otherwise it would overwhelm."
- Idries Shah
