Envy and Jealousy

Summary: Envy and jealousy are different, and in different ways they leave holes in our integrity. They leave us open to the influence of others, specifically those who seem to have what we want. Envy is especially is the target of advertising. It is why everyone and every situation seems so perfect, except for that part of it which can be fixed by the product or service.

 

Questions

Summary: This a relatively short essay on the use of questions. There is the obvious use - gaining information for the questioner - and then there is the teaching use - which is to focus the mind of the answerer so they gain insight.

 

Poverty 

Summary: This is a meditation on why people find find poverty and other similar practices (like silence and fasting) useful in spiritual practice and as a source of legitimacy. It leads onto exploring and an alternative analysis of power in terms of how it is given away rather than taken as is generally supposed. It also points to why the "war on terrorism" is destined to fail.
