Hello - Sighris & other interesting info:
Hello to all my LJ friends.
Can you believe we are a full month and a half into 2013 already?
I'm considering buying a new home in LA and/or a 2nd investment property in Chicago, and that has kept me busy... a few days ago the loan paperwork was finished and approved... now to select the best investments.
What is new in your life?

I just wrote this on a friends LJ, as a reply to what he wrote, and thought I would share it with you:
The ideas which first come to my mind when I see or hear the words "dualism" and "non-duality" are simplistic... then my ideas/concepts grow... I can begin to understand something by comparing it to something else. I know that this is warm because I have experienced cold. I further realize that temperature (for one example) has a spectrum though; there is cold, cool, warm, and hot. Going even further, the temperature example is one dimensional, and often to accurately describe/understand a situation requires more than one dimension. Human minds will often break down many/most/all of the descriptors into dualities to help us communicate/understand, but at the risk of mistaking the map for the territory.
There will always be rich and poor people, the spectrum will always be there; but it has been expanded and it can be shifted more, meaning that many of the poor today are better off than poor of centuries ago. And hopefully we can shift things more, and not just for the human species.
It will require work.
It will require time/patience and compassion.
Maybe it will require some "good luck".
Love will help.
- and that is why I came to your LJ today... to wish you a good day and a great week.
