The belief that knowledge, education, and technology can save us is delusion. What can protect us is morality and the Eightfold Path.
The truth about ceaseless stress of saṃsāra is everywhere, including in commercials which often aim at fixing the endless problems which assail us. Unlike the Dharma, TV commercials offer only a temporary fix. They never get at the root of the problem.
Over time, the habit of recognizing and releasing deluded and obsessive thoughts has the power to return the mind to its natural state of clarity, contentment, peace, and inherent wellness.
Why do we meditate? To see reality accurately so the mind can be freed from the absurd expectation that some manipulation of mental states and matter can bring enduring happiness. This work centers on how we interact with unfolding reality.
