"The combined left parties having more votes than the right yet the right winning also happens in Spain... You are having a great electoral turmoil this time, as in any other European country (just remember France or Austria): positions are becoming…"
"That would be hard to say, and I'm very fool and utopian to dare say that, and my anarchist background doesn't help... Anyway, I think that money is the problem. As Marx said, the social struggle is always an economical struggle.…"
"Good morning, David. Thank you for posting this great reflection.
In my opinion, both currents are almost the same at the end. Internationalism could sound better, but at the end it cares more about IBEX than people. Liberalization is a matter of…"
Good morning. I don't know if the War & Peace group would be the correct one for this post... :)I've read that permafrost (the frozen strata of water and rock beneath the surface of Siberia, northern Canada, etc.) is starting to melt. And this fact implies two things. The first is the liberation via aquifers of unknown bacteria and virus, which where frozen for the last 45 million years. This could mean terrible pandemics for which we don't have any kind of cure.The other fact is that…See More
On the day that England and Wales voted to leave the European Union, I am starting this group as a place for political comment. The aim is to create a space where all and any issue of current affairs in the world can be discussed from a spiritual perspective.See More
"Estoy de acuerdo, aunque quizá los latinos seamos un poco más intensos para todo, tanto para amar como para odiar :) Pero, efectivamente, no creo que se pueda (ni deba) generalizar. Bombu es igual para todos"
"Hello, David, and greetings from Madrid.
In my opinion, jealousy is not love, but possession, as we learn by Dharma and life. I'm very fortunate (I might done something very good in a previous life) to share my life with Ana, my wife, who among…"
My name's Cayetano and I'm from Madrid. I have been implied in Dharma study and practice since the last 8 years. In some way of another, my path had crossed through Amida Buddhism here and there. As a very lazy person I am, reciting of the Nembutsu it has been the only constant one during this time. I have recently completed the ITP course and now I want to do the V22 program.
How did you hear about Eleusis?
I received an invitation for Dharmavidya.
Is your primary interest...

Welcome to David Brazier at La Ville au Roi (Eleusis)
At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…
My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…
“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue
