IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE WAKE UP…

If not now then when?

BUDDHA IN THE MUD by Tony Barrs. There are two truths: the real and the seemingly real. Their connection is the negative emotions. On the path of the seemingly real, the emotions imprison us. On the path of the real, the emotions liberate us. There is a secret life to the emotions.

How easily we conform to being manipulated, and then pass this behaviour on to others.

The Milgram experiment shows how people, against their better judgement, obey someone in a white coat who instructs them to inflict electrical shocks on another person.

Living like temporary strangers
Another brick in the wall
Building, brick on brick on brick
A prison for people who will never go home again

And in agony those final words
Those simple words
Let my people go
