→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: POST-TRUTH
vertical line Posted on Dec.17.2017 @ 04:54PM EDT by so_teh
Post-truth was the 2016 word of the year.

Here I was, digging into myself for over a decade, studying and unlearning the untrue, meditating, giving 100% to an honest look within. Here, almost being unaware of the catastrophe going on outside of my meditation, I see the culmination of a metaphorical asteroid hitting the planet. So, waking up from my hibernation, which was skillfully crafted (luckily), I do see the coinciding angles unfolding (or what has unfolded), understanding with a tinge of remorse an actualization that hurts me more than it hurts you. A viable impossibility that rubs me the wrong way. The post-truthers not being my enemy but my full time job. Unfortunately, I'm unemployed.

vertical line Presently, I find the economy is well on it way to being better
Many jobs are found on the internet.
Just go to almost any website and look at the bottom where they have careers listed.
Apply. Put your resume up.
Maybe you'll get a job you like.

I don't know what your post-truth means to you.
Maybe you could elaborate a little more?

vertical line The secret is to recognize the other's presence as truly being there even though they themself may not be present. Automatically, they awake up, even if they are not aware of it, and you retain self-mastery.

vertical line You absolutely must understand the non-understandable.

And I'm not just being a jerk.

It sounds stupid. It sounds like it doesn't make any damn sense.

But... that's what it is.

I don't know what else to say.

It happens. I'm sorry for you.

There is no me that acts on any given opportunity. The word is God. God makes it happen. There never is or will be an "I" in the picture. The mind behind the mind works it. There's no me. It's just basic.

vertical line I love myself.My intuitive mind is very strong.I hope i'm not confusing myself with taking intuition and Zen as same.
What and all i need is a lively practice on the field.so that i can distinguish what is what.as for a long time i've been selling the intuitive as zen.

vertical line :) There is a Zen story that goes like this. ‘Master, how do I enter Zen?’ asked the pupil. ‘Do you hear the sound of mountain stream?’ asked the master. ‘Yes, I do,’ replied the pupil. ‘Enter Zen from there,’ said the master.
