Skimming the headlines, I see this: « Finding order in the chaos of currents. »
I wonder if it’s referring to something like Bernie Glassman’s Order of Disorder. Somehow I don’t think so.
Quite a project, this chaos vs. order in the flow of things as they are. Like the way of the bodhisattva: What are we supposed to be doing, saving all sentient beings when there’s no one to be saved, and no one to save them? And everyone is already saved!
The « answer, » of course, is the interconnected nature of the « self. » Are the connections « orderly, » and the ungraspable nature « chaotic »? Or vice-versa? Or none of the above? Or both?
As the American Zen teacher Norman Fischer says: « We are not so much persons as ever-shifting points of meeting. »
