Sometimes contain pearls of wisdom that stick with you and you remember more than just being told the lesson learned from it. Two stories that come to mind are the following:

“Wanting God” Zen Story which really put it in my head what can be obtained when there is a great thirst or effort for something. In a version I heard the hermit was Socrates and the “disciple” wanted to know how to obtain wisdom.

“Two Monks and a Woman” Zen Story really stuck out for me as well with it’s great “punchline.” Here the poster uses it mean attachment to ideas which I had never thought of before but is interesting nonetheless. Through my own personal lens I saw it as letting go of things such as past events that aren’t going to change and letting yourself still “carry” them. As I heard it when you hold a grudge at someones it’s like drinking poison and hoping the other person will die.


What is reality? With me things are never that clear cut and simple and I want to look at a myriad of sources. It all connects! I always think, what if there’s that one thing I am ignorant that will change how I see the world. This website is well organized and has physics philosophy and religion! Woohoo!

I initially stumbled on trying to figure out the truth about the holographic universe. It can be hard to tell with physics at times where the line is on what’s true since it can be taken to New Agey extremes as in How to Teach Physics To Your Dog by Chad Orzel calls “evil squirrels.”
