Change and the Self and Other Writings 224 pages

Published on Jun 2, 2013
What we have here are recent essays and blogs, mostly from 2013, but some from 2012. These offerings are a bit of a smorgasbord, but two principle themes are the effects of change on the Self and its reactions. Although I have many interests, of late they seem to be narrowing down to dharma-related themes, in particular phenomenology and the dharma. It is a little embarrassing to have such a narrow perspective, but then I remind myself that the dharma is not only the middle way, but it is a wide path, and the only one I feel like traveling just now.
Dharma: The Intangibles 44 Pages pages
By Michael Erlewine
Published on Nov 22, 2013
Meditation training is still quite new in this country. We are just getting the word out, so most of the emphasis is on the actual physical meditation technique itself, the bare bones, but there is more. Aside from the basic physical technique, there are what I sometimes call the "intangibles' – everything else. There is so much emphasis on learning the basic techniques of meditation that these intangibles are usually ignored until later on down the line. The problem with this is that these so-called "intangibles" are not just supplementary add-ons -- afterthoughts. Quite the contrary, they are crucial to the success of actually learning to meditate properly.
