  2. this was a great episode! i winced the whole way through waiting for something to happen. a potentially volatile topic for sure. but then i thought, isn’t choosing to see something from a certain perspective cause and effect as well? it’s not just what you do, it’s so much deeper than that.
    good episode of thinking.
    it’s such a gift for you to do this

  5. I can’t believe how much I look forward to each of these episodes. Each and every one is well produced and perfectly delivered.

    I feel I must also point out that I am not a Buddhist in the true sense of the word however thanks to Jason I know loads of people who are. I guess this is why I started listening. I find myself agreeing and empathising with ‘Geoff’ all the time. Is there such thing as a ‘closet Buddhist’ and if so is there a support group I could join??? 🙂

    I guess all I’m trying to say is thank you and if only I could get past the chanting…..

  6. hello jarretts – check out the website and podcasts for the interdependence project. especially the podcasts. i enjoyed the recent one about laziness. it seems that you may enjoy the site and the intent. it’s not sgi, but another great lecture series – in the recent one, he talks about how mentors and heroes aren’t better than us, but reflections of what we know within ourselves to be possible. i feel these lectures fit really nicely with my sgi practice. check it out!
    thanks for everything!
