samsara


friends,

 

in posting this week's podcast, i'm reminded of the concept of saṃsāra.

 

as i understand it (in my, admittedly, simplistic way), the meaning is something like "the mortal/mundane world of life and death," which is to say - this one, here and now, where we struggle and work and ache over and over again.

 

maybe escape isn't the question?

maybe there's a wisdom in accepting it?

maybe it's possible to appreciate it?

 

i don't know,

but i hope there's a way.

 

in that spirit, yr invited to join me for - episode 595.

 

i hope you will!

 

the songs:

- safe (2018, demo1)

- safe (2018, demo2)

- the hope side of it (2018 demo)

 

love,

russell
