    Snarky Buddha Tweets… 

    Idealism and nihilism cancel each other out. The real world is imperfect but hopeful, sometimes cruel, sometimes kind. I can see your heart, but I can’t read your mind…

    Buddhist Considerata… 

    Idealism and nihilism cancel each other out, so many useless frenzied speculations and false experiments, blood stains on the well-worn sheets of experience, protagonists and antagonists duking it out over who gets reproduction rights to a life not long for this world in the first place, fighting over turf as the waters rise precipitously, trying to maximize profits in a world that has no more futures markets. Such is the world of governments and politics, armies and navies. The real world is imperfect but hopeful, sometimes cruel sometimes kind. The real world is only about you, and your relation to the unconditioned source, the cause of all transient effects, the white screen upon which all is written and all is projected. This is neither idealistic nor nihilistic. This is reality, blinking on and off at the speed of light…

      The power of this is focused by its brevity. I particularly liked ‘a world that has no more futures markets’. Three cheers for the striking schoolkids!

          Nicest quote from yesterday: kid from Florida said, ‘There’s no better way to find hope and meaning in this trying time than working alongside fellow people who share my grief for the world.’
