We watch The Dhamma Brothers about Vipassana meditation in Alabama penitentiary. Good for them!
It is a characteristic tendency of human beings to indulge in emotions such as happiness, grief, or anger in response to present conditions, failing to balance these feelings with the awareness that present conditions are results of past causes. It is illogical to face the present only as an object of enjoyment or tolerance, neglecting to use it as the opportunity to create the future.To live life well now is to create the future. Now, then, whenever -- its' all the realization of true self, true nature.
- Muso Kokushi (1275-1351)

It's a good country.
It could use some good, long, insightful sitting.
