Chong Go Sunim (sunim is the Korean title for a Buddhist monk) posted this on a blog he maintains with four friends:
The great Korean Buddhist teacher Hanam Sunim (1876-1951) once said that the things we do in our lives either brighten our minds, or darken them. He said that there’s really no neutral ground, just effects that are too subtle for us to notice.
I thought of this the other day, when I came across this great line in the “Bangkok Tattoo”: Another washing machine, a bigger car, a nicer house to live in? Not much to feed the spirit in all that.
He then asked:
What feeds your spirit?
