True Dharma Eye Case 295: Yunmen's Treasure
Email, cell phones, and chat rooms are a part of our everyday life. We are inundated with new modes of communication, but rather than bringing us closer the new technologies have actually separated us from others and from ourselves. Frequency of contact has replaced actual relating, and this easy communication has led to a reliance on others, a need to constantly be in shallow contact with the people in our lives. But if we can turn our focus on the lantern within, this light will allow us to enter into the mystery and set us free. Only when we are self-reliant can we learn the true meaning of intimate communication.
