But when one understands what it is to be attentive, with the body, the nerves, the eyes, the ears, the brain, the whole, total being... to be attentive to color, to thought, to one's speech--then, in that attention, there is a concentration which is not exclusion. I can attend, I can look, I can work on something without exclusion.If you remain unconvinced that "separation" and division (as opposed to Unity & Oneness) is an ideological position--if you believe that intelligence is equivalent to analytical consciousness: then keep your children away from Facebook!
