This post is inspired (and in a way I am inspired to write again on KarmaDude) by an interview I heard of the revered Dr. Amartya Sen, Nobel Laureate and economist. As articulate and lucid as he is in his conversation and as verbosely profound he is in his writing, Dr Sen never fails to instill a sense of ponderous thought and an almost sub-consciously Socratic experimentation on topics we otherwise hardly think about. One such topic is the idea of what is “just” around us.
Open your mind, change your thought, with these zen stories from Renegade Zen:
By moving yourself outside of what you would call normal or rational, you can see the world and yourself from a new perspective, thereby acheiving satori, or enlightenment, in the process.
