This blog tries to be quite serious. It’s aim is to address the crises assailing our world by using news clips, commentary, and appropriate spiritual quotes.
This means I spend most of my time looking for news that can be illuminated with higher thought—issues brought up to the level of Principle—raising consciousness far above the mire and muck of current materialistic concerns.
Some days my search for appropriate news clips brings me only unrelieved sorrow, depression, and heartbreak.
Today was one of those days, so I turned to my favorite comic relief, Jon Stewart. If you watch him you might have a few belly laughs while also seeing the absurdity of the competing parties in our sorry world drama.
Since this blog is my global home, I chose the following spiritual quote:
“My home is the home of peace. My home is the home of joy and delight. My home is the home of laughter and exultation. Whosoever enters through the portals of this home, must go out with gladsome heart. This is the home of light; whosoever enters here must become illumined….”
