- Jan 1, 2004
Hello Sandeep, Thanks for asking for the summary - that's exactly what I also needed. And thanks Jody for the summary. My humble view is that the comfort/security perspective is simply a temporary manifestation of a greater universal movement. As we achieve higher levels of comfort/security we find ourselves freer to learn new truths about the world - this seeking of higher truths appears a more fundamental movement, like evolution.
Perhaps, but it behooves us to look at all seeking in the light of the (imo) prevalant drive for comfort in one form or another. Is not the yearning for "higher truths" more of the same, albeit all decked out in "spiritual" raiment? It's as if we are at long last insisting on nothing less than the penultimate comfort, the universal meta- comfort that obviates the need for all the mundane (material, emotional, social, etc.) comforts, the comfort that renders us invulnerable to all discomfort and transforms us into beings of unflappable serenity!
You're more than welcome,
May I thank all members here for such a wonderful year of sharing knowledge and experiences.
Tony -- Happy New Year!
