The truth is not a doctrine, home, personal or communal identity, or agenda.
WOWWonderful juxtaposition of busy and still, black and white.Thanks
Very beautiful...brings two thoughts...both yours for free. Thought 1. I was a practicing Quaker for a while in college. Learned then that Quakers used to dress in simple black clothes. They did not even have buttons because they were too worldly. After a few decades they notices that their "simple" clothes made them stand out as a class apart. Too much "you aren't Quaker 'cause you don't dress simply enough" so the abandoned their "simple" dress for "common dress." Like "normal" Walmart or Target clothes. ---When your "non-attachment" becomes an attachment, you must abandon non-attachment. Thought 2.If you're sympathetic with the contrast/sorrow of modern Japan with "old" Japan, give a listen to "Pacific Overtures" a musical by Stephen Sondheim. Its very sweet, and funny, and sad in this regard of the "old, simple ways" giving into modernity. It also taught me a fair bit about Japanese history. Cheers, as always-Lauren
