To Start

“Rightly defined philosophy is simply the love of wisdom.”

Rabbi Zusya

“Rabbi Zusya said shortly before his death: ‘In heaven they will not ask me why I wasn’t Moses, they will ask me why I wasn’t Zusya.”

Come, My Way

“Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:
such a way as gives us breath,
such a truth as ends all strife,
such a life as killeth death.”

The Father

“The father who does not teach his son his duties is equally guilty with the son who neglects them.”

QOTD Summer Break

QOTD is taking a summer break and will return in the fall term.   Thank you for your attention.

Meditation Measure

“Half an hour’s meditation each day is essential, except when you are busy. Then a full hour is needed.”

Relaxed and Upright

“Total relaxation is the secret to enjoying sitting meditation. I sit with my spine upright, but not rigid; and I relax all the muscles in my body.”

Zest of the Game

Zest of the Game

“What we see as death, empty space, or nothingness is only the trough between the crests of this endlessly waving ocean. It is all part of the illusion that there should seem to be something to be gained in the future, and that there is an urgent necessity to go on and on until we get it. Yet just as there is no time but the present, and no one except the all-and-everything, there is never anything to be gained – though the zest of the game is to pretend there is.”

Bondage

“If one could be made to understand that caring for oneself is bondage, while feeding others is freedom, then life would be easy for all.”
