To diminish the animal kingdom is to diminish ourselves. This is the realm of philosophers, poets, healers and shamans. It is not necessarily incompatible with humane and thoughtful management.

Shabbat and Trungpa

Alison Laichter | Posted 10.01.2014 | Religion
Alison Laichter

My hope is that, like Trungpa's idea of an empty heart, each time I am re-souled through Shabbat, there is more tenderness and less tangibility, a waking up of my soul, an opening of my heart, and a chance to practice making everything holy, at least one day a week.

I admit that I am easily annoyed, which makes me sound hypocritical when I talk about soul stuff. People can chew their gum too loudly in a meeting and I want to throw them down a well.
