A Projection of Madness

“Nobody today is normal, everybody is a little bit crazy or unbalanced.  People’s minds are running all the time. Their perceptions of the world are partial, incomplete. They are eaten alive by their egos. They think they see, but they are mistaken; all they do is project their madness, their world, upon the world. There is no clarity, no wisdom in that!”  ~Taisen Deshimaru

I see that a lot in the media.  I see that a lot in politics.  I see that a lot in myself.

  1. I find it interesting to find out when this sort of quote was written, and compare it to the present. He was talking about the world we see today, but he said it years ago. It helps me understand the saying, “The more things change the more they stay the same.”—Only more so.
