Between these two my life flows

‘Love says “I am everything.” Wisdom says, “I am nothing.” Between these two my life flows.’–Nisargadatta

We had a discussion on how different flavors of Buddhism and the more popular forms of mindfulness deal with spiritual matters like ethics and non-self. It was all very interesting and heartfelt, and sort of difficult to sum up in a few words. 

Instead, I’ll direct you to a link that I used:

“The Illusion of Self”–a set of readings from Palousemindfulness.com

I also mentioned two books:  “Buddhism Without Beliefs” by Stephen Batchelor and Sam Harris’ “Waking Up.”

Finally, the sun came out this afternoon over Lake Superior. Autumn is just beginning.
