Hey, Bob -
Yes, any activity that involves a sphere,
spinning and soaring through space
makes for a wonderful meditative yantra,
an apt metaphor for spiritual
soaring, analogous to blissball on
which we live, and therefore, on topic.
The Phillie's may do a 9th Avenue
Freeze Out on the Rays, but I don't
think McNabb can do the advaita
shuffle all season. A nondual realization
is more likely .
