Widespread

My Post (4)

When I want to bemoan the state of our politics and our society all I really need to remember is that we got here by abandoning (in large part) the precepts. And, adding more hate and resentment will only make things worse. Changing minds is not nearly as important as changing behavior but almost equally impossible. My only solution to the current state of decline is to try to practice dana, sila and bhavana as purely as possible to create better future conditions. May you be well.
