This is a selection of various pieces of writing that focus upon issues which are critical to our mental and physical well-being, as well as our rights for inner freedom, justice and free speech.
Essentially it is a collection of ideas that must be thoughtfully considered if we are to retain any hope of achieving real freedom and improving our current levels of health. The aim and purpose of A Fine Balance , which I now refer to as Enlightened Wisdom, is to help people better understand what is going on in the world around them, and particularly to aid in their ability to discriminate between what actions and thoughts are harmful to themselves and others and what actions are of benefit and useful.
My hope is to enhance the sense of interconnectedness we feel and to inspire readers to participate in discussions, and more importantly reflection, contemplation and meditation that will enhance their ability to see reality as it really is. By understanding clearly the true nature of phenomena, we can develop our intelligence and wisdom, removing the veil of ignorance which acts as the root cause of our suffering, so that we may generate more compassion and understanding for the suffering and misery experienced by oneself and others. It is only through acting with a motivation that is truly concerned with the well being of others, that we have any chance of securing our own peace of mind.
Anyway, now that I come across as a being who is reasonably intelligent, I have a small favour to ask. Could you please do something positive to support this blog and buddhist endeavour? I am a Mahayana Buddhist practitioner in need of financial support. This is my daily routine. I wake early to engage in morning prayer. This takes several hours. I pray on behalf of family, friends and the community. Then I keep a house and a car, I support my teachers and then I engage again in several hours of evening prayer, every day of the week.
I am currently in charge of supporting many beings, do I need to mention names? Well, here goes, we all need to eat, be housed etc just like the customer. As we have done plenty of nice things for you here, providing you with good quality services that don’t cost too much, could you hold up your end of the deal and get on down to the payments page and do the right thing!
