Weekly Photo Challenge: Silohuette (Seaside Promenade)

I have been showing some night views of the seaside promenade in Hong Kong.

This image was taken in about the same location; but before the sun actually set.4896163873_687f31ac34_o

Silhouettes of trees, people resting, skyline of part of the city is the main theme.

Please enjoy!

Yet there are psychopathologies whose descriptions sound like this. I suspect that unless the insubstantial nature of one’s personal self is deeply seen and felt (seemingly a rare event, even among Buddhist practitioners), the act of expanding the sense of self will lead too easily to some form of inflation or megalomania. “

~Tyrone Cashman talking about the book, World as Lover: World as Self.

Spiritual traditions have tended to look at the world in four major ways: as a battlefield, as a trap, as a lover, and as the self. The first two – as a stage set for our moral battles or as a prison to escape – are probably…
