The disciplines ,gradual and sudden, formerly practiced by individuals to pacify their minds, bringing them into accord with ultimate reality, must now be practiced socially- that is, not just inside our heads, but outside of them, in the world, where our central nervous system effectively now is.
This book was first published in 1963. It is astounding to me that people can reveal the future to us and also have a positive outlook, and still we can't see it more than fifty years later more than one hundred years later. To take pictures of oneself and project them through social media is counterproductive. It is remaining in your head and becomes a reality only to those individuals. Social media is a platform for change. And though I am working to make my positive impact through art, I can eliminate photos of my good side as a possibility for that.
