Re: Nearness

Thanks Ross. By chance I found this interesting article by Victor Mansfield quoting the scientist David Bohm.

Quote:
It is proposed that the widespread and pervasive distinctions between people (race, nation, family, profession, etc., etc.), which are now preventing mankind from working together for the common good, and indeed, even for survival, have one of the key factors of their origin in a kind of thought that treats things as inherently divided, disconnected, and "broken up" into yet smaller constituent parts. Each part is considered to be essentially independent and self-existent.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
