16797Meditation and Guns, Rifles, Ammo and Knives
- Sep 17, 2009This Friday, Saturday and Sunday I'll once
again be showing my knives at the Valley
Forge Gun Show at the Valley Forge (PA)
Convention Center. The last few shows have
been interesting and fun as many Meditation Society
of America members stopped by to say hello and chat.
Several have taken home some of the knives, including
some we have featured on this forum. The knives can
be seen online at http://www.bobroseknives.com and
the story behind them can be found on this forum if
you search Zen and the Art of Knifemaking. The show
environment is unique and amazing as only a place
that has thousands of weapons and thousands of the
people who use them can be. And for me the opportunity
to interact with the high and serene meditators and
the intense and intent gun-nuts is fascinating. Often
when someone comes up to my table, it's quite a
surprise to learn which camp they are in. I find that
I keep the same hat on either way and enjoy flowing
with the people, the environment and the activity
very much. In any event, I promised many people
that I'd post here to let them know when the next
show I'll be at is taking place, so here's that notice.
And for me, this part of life's show is so seemingly
incongruous with the usual meditative setting
that it is amusing and amazing. And I appreciate
any opportunity to share in such an unexpected venue.
See you there!
Peace and blessings,
