compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
The Buddhist monk is detached from worldly life by living in a monastery and, when outside the monastery, walking with bowed head whilst focusing on walking, or doing other simple things whilst always focusing on the now. The lay person, to achieve such detachment from what is going on around them in the microcosm and the macrocosm, has to rely upon acquiring the awareness that the microcosm and the macrocosm are merely creations of the mind - virtual reality – and that it is the mentivity, or attitude, individual and collective, that counts.
This awareness brings the further awareness that “It is the thought that counts”. In other words it is the attitude of one that counts; the attitude of each moul and, therefore, the collective human psyche which, being the cause, is also the solution.
