That marquee on the corner

Well, the Church of the Nazarene at the end of my street has done it again. The marquee today reads as follows:
There is no free tuition in the school of experience.
Ain't that the truth???

Now, here's the deal. If we're going to benefit from those lessons presented to us through experience, we need some context, some basic principles, for interpreting what's actually going on in a way that's consistent with reality. You already know I'm going to remind you that the meditative tradition gives us that context and those principles.

So keep meditating. And keep paying attention to the transmissions of the authentic teachers out there.
