After much contemplation, I finally wrote about my experience with #Vipassana meditation.

Sharing some quotes/excerpts/concepts in the thread below.
#Vipassanā in Pali means “#insight” or “seeing deeply”.

The practice of Vipassanā meditation, thus, revolves around training your mind to observe reality as it is, and not as you wish it to be. And in the process, overcome #suffering.
It is a #meditation technique that the #Buddha mastered over time and found to be the most effective in eradicating all kinds of suffering in the world.

In this article, we express our critical position towards using #CRISPR to engineer #pigs so that do not reach puberty. #Livestock farming should be designed with animal sentience at its core, we should not modify #animals to fit inhumane systems. allianceforscience.cornell.edu/blog/2019/07/a…
One aspect that the article does not mention and that we clearly indicated as being problematic is animal suffering during #experiments involving #CRISPR: painful #malformations, #abortions, are common "side effects" of such experiments.
Our original statement said "#CRISPR has a high potential for causing severe #animal #suffering during the research phases (such as abortions, perinatal mortality, malformations)

»#YuriBezmenov may well go down in history as a #saint by the #survivors of the generations to come.

His statements about the global “#communist agenda” offers an opportunity for students of #history, #philosophy and #economics - world wide - to take note of #reality and to
..
.. reflect on the identity of their intellectual enemy, the dynamics of #capitalism in economics, and the role of #violence in politics.

Firstly, what is the “western identity”? From my understanding .. the #western identity has been shaped primarily by what it has resisted:
..
..
namely monarchic #despotism, authoritative #collectivism, and the infringement on the sovereignty of the #individual. You can even say that, to an extent, #Christianity itself followed from an already existing identity (i.e. the #Socratic divination of the individual).

Food for a family for breaking fast during Ramadan. And even this food was provided by the people. No help comes to flood victims from the government.

The #mind is a #coward, for those who listen to it become utterly cowardly. The mind is not an #adventurer, it is very #cautious. It takes every step with #thinking and #calculation until it is #certain that there is no #risk.
When everything is going good the mind comes in and says "watch out!" Because you listen to the mind's #fears you stop living. The mind would keep you always the same, never taking #risks.

Newness is an #enemy to the #mind, sameness is its #friend.
To #laugh is to #risk appearing a #fool

This is a beautiful method, will be very useful for you. For example, if you are feeling very discontented, what to do?

#Patanjali says ponder on the opposite: if you are feeling #discontented, contemplate about #contentment, what is contentment. Bring a #balance.
If your mind is #angry, bring #compassion in, think about compassion; and, immediately, the energy changes. Because they are the same; the opposite is the same energy.

Once you bring it in, it absorbs. #Anger is there: contemplate on compassion
The #opposite is the pole. When you feel #hateful, think of #love. When you feel #desire, think of #desirelessness and the silence that comes in it. Whatsoever the case, bring the opposite in and watch what happens within you.

Start with #desire.

One has to begin with desiring something that cannot be achieved by desiring. But if you are aware of this fact - if you are aware of the fact that you are desiring something that cannot be desired - it helps. At any moment, you can take the #jump.
With the #mind we cannot understand anything which is effortless. Mind means effort. The faculty of the mind is to do something; it is an instrument for doing. The very faculty of mind is to #achieve something, to gain some desire.
You cannot begin with no #desiring. The mind will make this non-desiring also the desired object.

The mind will create new desire and say, “Okay, I will try not to desire.” It will say, “Really, it looks fascinating. I will try to do something so that this no desiring happens.”

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org are two good resources to help you.
