This blog is all words. Words are symbols for concepts.
“Taking concepts to be reality. That’s the basic human dysfunction that we call maya or illusion or original sin… we form all these concepts in the head, and then we take the concepts to be reality. And the concepts are words about reality at best…”
— Francis Bennett (1:09)*
In other words, if I feed your concepts that create barriers to what is here, this blog fails. But if the words here offer pointers that help you recognize what is already here, it succeeds.
“Peace will come one enlightenment at a time.”
–John Mark (1:32)*

Both bring a Christian perspective to the enlightenment discussion.
