I don’t have a TV so I didn’t see the Oscars, and found myself looking up Ellen’s Oscars selfie, because I keep hearing about it. I found it, of course, the camera pointed at 10 smiling faces, 3 million retweets, 3 million dollars donated, etc. Then I looked at my inbox and saw Pointing to Something Real. An interesting juxtaposition, Hollywood and FBA, the kind the internet really masters.

Now the idea of compassion not as an end in itself but something whose importance comes from what it points to about non-duality. If I never truly know/understand/embody/appreciate non-duality I will be still be grateful for simple compassion. Compassion for its own sake has made many things bloom and is really the best gift ever.

And in case it’s lost in my comment, I really like this clip! I kept clicking the progress bar back to re-listen to certain parts as I went.
