Mat Osmond replied to David Brazier's discussion FALSE "NEWS" in the group WAR & PEACE
"Perhaps the best policy is to ignore what is said and see what they actually do. Indeed - true of Trump, as of all of us, I suppose! Said before, but I keep wondering if all this 'loose cannon' stuff is quite as unthinking as it seems. I…"

Mat Osmond replied to David Brazier's discussion THE GREAT GRIEF in the group BUDDHISM
"However, the emphasis upon how to fix the problem, worthy as it is, still overlooks the more existential aspect that must also be a part of spiritual life. We should use the power we have in order to make things better, but we must also face our…"

"To cross threads, I've just finished Adam Curtis' The Century of the Self. As a way of backing-up to get a clearer view of the past year, I found it invaluable - more later. Adam Cutis and others have spoken about how the lying being…"

Mat Osmond replied to David Brazier's discussion SECRETLY PUT DOWN A DEEP ROOT in the group HELLENICA & ANCIENT WISDOM
"Thanks Ryusho Jeffus, that's very interesting. It also reminds me of the Franciscan priest Fr Richard Rohr encouraging people to speak to God of their disappointment and rage, just as you say here. To 'shout at God, but don't sulk…"

Mat Osmond replied to David Brazier's discussion WHAT IS NEMBUTSU? in the group BUDDHISM
"Lovely summary, thank you. The soft rain soaking into one's coat is a beautiful metaphor. Funny, but it seems exactly that sense of simple, accepting generosity that I notice a curiously entrenched resistance to. As if my mind were doggedly…"

"I recall a tongue-in-cheek article suggesting that - based on recent annual gun fatality data - if the next US President wishes to protect his citizens from the most dangerous elements in their midst, he may need to think of deporting toddlers en…"

Dancing Round the Elephant

This is a reflection on a one-day forum that I recently attended, on the theme of Spirituality and Ecology. It was hosted by the good people at St Ethelburga’s Centre for Peace and Reconciliation, April 22nd 2016.

Communication? Quelle communication?

Posted by Tamuly Annette on February 6, 2017 at 19:00 3 Comments

J'ai toujours pensé que la véritable communication  ne pouvait se faire qu'en face-à-face et que les communications virtuelles - si communes aujourd'hui sur les réseaux sociaux - ne sont que de déplorables pis-aller. Pourtant, à la réflexion, il me semble qu'il convient de corriger ce point de vue par trop simpliste. Certes, rien ne vaut la richesse d'une rencontre réelle où les paroles ne sont qu'un élément d'un ensemble où tout peut devenir signifiant. Les mots s'accompagnent de toute une…
