the deep spirit of this blog

[New? Start here: https://meditationstuff.wordpress.com/articles/]

On the consulting page I mention the “deep spirit” of this blog. I was wondering if I could put that into words. Here is an attempt:

  • scientifically non-contradictory spirituality
  • the ultimate concern of having ever better ultimate concerns, values, ethics [or, sigh, recursively-bootstrapping-self-optimization]
  • the realization of human potential along all axes, across all timescales
  • grace (“meditation is an accident; [smart] meditation makes you accident-prone”)
  • surrender (to self, others, and world)
  • reaching out and affecting really real reality as an expression of your will
  • folly
  • love

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” –Marcel Proust

“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.” –Richard Feynman (Cargo Cult Science)

“Lord Ronald said nothing; he flung himself from the room, flung himself upon his horse and rode madly off in all directions.” –Stephen Leacock
