@craicem It was never particularly busy. I suspect cultivating nonattachment also helps people cut down on their social media time.

Todayโ€™s dharma-burger: a prepackaged single serving of cheddar popcorn, from @LesserEvilSnack. Bonus points for making it clear that theyโ€™re referencing the Laughing Buddha on the back, rather than Shakyamuni.

@ShaunBartone Relativity has interesting things to say about how time passes under different circumstances, but itโ€™s still singular, and always subjectively linear. Someone elseโ€™s experience may not look linear to you, though.

@craicem The older version of the Jedi Code has a very Taoist feel:

Emotion, yet peace.
Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity.
Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.

@craicem The Force sounds a lot like the Tao in other guise. Taoists are much more engaged in the world than Buddhists; the Tao Te Ching is full of advice about wise administration, while Buddhism tends to prefer monastic settings.

@craicem Buddhism is welcome here; I practice Zen myself. We might be too unserious for some groups; if my makes you laugh, you should fit right in.
