Consciousness Is A Constant – It Does Not Alter

quote [ It is easy to understand how one may confuse these altered contents of consciousness to be an alteration in consciousness itself. ]

The mindfulness conspiracy

quote [ Mindfulness practices do not permit critique or debate of what might be unjust, culturally toxic or environmentally destructive. Rather, the mindful imperative to ?accept things as they are? while practising ?nonjudgmental, present moment awareness? acts as a social anesthesia, preserving the status quo. ]

A long read for stating the obvious. See also The Faux Revolution of Mindfulness (thumb source) and Is mindfulness making us ill?

These Millennials Got New Roommates. They?re Nuns.

quote [ Sarah Jane Bradley was an unmarried, ?spiritual but not religious? professional in her early 30s, with a rowdy group of friends and a start-up when she moved out of her communal house and into a convent. ]

I have been working with nuns in the midwest; I have been struck by their knowledge, skill and dedication. Like the article says, their average age is 80.

Abraham Verghese and Denise Pope ? How Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?

quote [ It?s very scary to let your kid make a mistake or fail or not turn in their homework or get a bad grade or make a social mistake or whatever. And I think ? they talk about this thing, ?the door.? We don?t want ?the door? to close; we want to keep all doors open, as if what you do in eighth grade is going to affect you for the rest of your life. It?s not. ]

Kind of stumbled upon this theological podcast. And while I'm just halfway through the transcript this sounded like an interesting range of thoughts on the whole career thing.

Semantic Drain and the Meaninglessness of Modern Work

quote [ "Late-capitalistic semantic drain" sounds like its own uniquely hellish bullshit neologism. But I swear it does mean something: the lack of meaning spreading through English, driven by a corporate monoculture devoted solely to profit. ]

Starts with grammar critique, ends with hollow jobs.

The US government just officially recognized the Satanic Temple as a religion

quote [ The Satanic Temple has earned the same tax-exempt status as a church by the IRS.

One of the first things that people need to realize about us is that we don't advocate for any supernatural beliefs. We're a nontheistic religion. We don't subscribe to supernatural explanations or accept them as legitimate," Greaves said.

He explains that while members of the Satanic Temple see the mythological, and literary, figure of Satan as a symbol of rebellion against tyranny, they do not worship Satan in any way. "This idea of worship, it's usually kind of insulting to people who identify with Satanism, because that implies a sense of servility. Satanism is about personal sovereignty and independence and freedom of will," he said. ]

Can't be any worse than the church of Ted Haggard...
