Be here now

We are always on the tangent of the moment – only touching the wave of change one point at a time. (Elisabeth Bee)

In his autobiography, Be Here Now, Ram Dass wrote: “The game is not about becoming somebody, it’s about becoming nobody.”

Arguably, one of the most crucial words in that sentence is the second one: ‘game’.

They say play is essential preparation for life. They say sport is healthy. My observation is that people generally take sport very seriously. But as vital as the rules are, the interpretation of the rules is even more vital.

Enlightenment is the ego’s ultimate disappointment. (Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche)

PS: This is post #100 on A Twisted Pair. The first was on 08 March 2010. And it’s good to be here now.
