Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion FRANCE CHOOSES EUROPE in the group WAR & PEACE
"French elections have been the lab of a fundamental political change in Europe, and at the global level as well.  As a sort of Cartesian "clear and distinct" idea, it is now emerging that federalism and nationalism are the new main…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion WITH FIRE IN THEIR HAIR in the group HELLENICA & ANCIENT WISDOM
"yes. along the centuries the most basic foundation of Power has been the one of keeping separated good and evil, right and wrong, positive deeds and crime. Very often (always) singling out the the sexual side of evil. The "uneasiness in…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion WHY NO INFLATION? in the group WAR & PEACE
"classical economic theory is useful only for mainstream academics. In fact it failed to prevent (or even explaining) relevant phenomena, like the burst of the financial bubbles.  At present it is reasonable to think that given a mix of factors…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion IS THIS AN IRON CURTAIN MOMENT? in the group WAR & PEACE
"great geopolitical vision! Remarkably clear. And rather optimistic about the new equilibria that are going to be established. May we and our offsprings keep some peace and a minimum of stability while these gigantic processes unfold. Unfortunately…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion BREXIT PLUS PLUS in the group WAR & PEACE
"Thank you David, great understanding of the situation, and great wisdom.  The wind has changed, in a direction which is opposite to the one we like. Therefore these are interesting times to live. I would add that we have to look at blame, fear…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion PRESERVING DEMOCRACY in the group WAR & PEACE
"I like very much the governamentality construct (M Foucault). A hidden-structural power keeps in control minds-bodies and reproduces the conditions for the subjugation of multitudes (the latter is a spinozian term). But, if this is true we cannot…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion PRESERVING DEMOCRACY in the group WAR & PEACE
"yes. this is a really crucial issue.  In many different places the facilitation of ethnic/local communities' autonomy and of groups' coalescence has been for a long time considered as a factor contributing to the promotion of…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion IS THE WORLD GOING TO BECOME PROTECTIONIST? in the group WAR & PEACE
"yes, for sure, more boundaries and less cosmopolitan life. This will entail more stringencies in local relationships and bonds, less individual freedom, increased power of local (also at the micro and meso level) parties, cliques and mafias. All…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion Racism & Xenophobia in the group WAR & PEACE

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion How the Cold War was (finally) Won/Lost in the group WAR & PEACE
"Nobody knows how things will unfold in the middle (let's say 2 - 3 years) and the long term (2050).  Maybe somebody, somewhere, has powerful tools (algorithms, models databases..) and is able to get close to reliable forecasts. But it is…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion A FIRE FOR ARTEMIS in the group HELLENICA & ANCIENT WISDOM
"yes, it's good to send peans to the goddess, but well knowing that she'll be always stronger than us, much cruel, never appeased. She'll be always able to have our dogs gone crazy and have us devoured. Because of a small, so human,…"

Massimo Tomassini replied to David Brazier's discussion FIVE STAGES OF MINDFULNESS: Toward and beyond spacious mind in the group BUDDHISM

Study Group.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on July 18, 2017 at 22:41 1 Comment

We just had a study group meeting at Amida Mandala Temple. Only three of us but a very rich hour. Predictably we came round to the issue of ‘is one Nembutsu enough?’ My understanding: In a sense it is, because when we call Amida we become one with his vow and the Pure Land and thus we are saved. In another sense we have to keep calling him so that he can keep saving us. As if we’re all lost in a thick fog and Amida is a few steps ahead of us illuminating the way, we have to keep him in sight…

Wasted

My sons childhood friend was brutally murdered on Friday night. It is hard to believe that it happened. As he left a Birmingham pub a number of young people surrounded him. One of them stabbed him in the heart and he bled to death. He was twenty six years old. I can't get it out of my thoughts, why would any one be that cruel. Why as humans do we do this to each other. I've spent most of the weekend comforting my son, he went on Holliday with Daniel the friend that lost his life, two weeks…
