[ ed ] Fragmented, Uninformed and victims of 'echo chambers'!

On the #MSM in the UK, I waste little time listening to their #microOpinions but rather look at the broad strokes, as a media channel it was the only one set up with the remit of #mildDistruption ...

...and I like Jon Snow [ and Dan come to that, real people IMHO ]

#whatsIt ?

A jewel treasure ~ Geshe Langri Thangpa
http://justdharma.com/s/k3lou

When I see beings of unpleasant character
Oppressed by strong negativity and suffering,
May I hold them dear - for they are rare to find -
As if I have discovered a jewel treasure!

STORYVILLE
The Arabian Motorcycle Adventures #UKONLY

Documentary which tells the remarkable story of Matt Van Dyke, a timid 26-year-old with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, who left home in Baltimore in 2006 and set off on a self-described 'crash course in manhood'. He bought a motorcycle and a video camera and began a multi-year, 35,000-mile motorcycle trip through northern Africa and the Middle East.

While travelling, he struck up an unlikely friendship with a Libyan hippie, and when revolution broke out in Libya, Matt joined his friend in the fight against dictator Muammar Gaddafi. With a gun in one hand and a camera in the other, Matt fought in - and filmed - the war until he was captured by Gaddafi forces and held in solitary confinement for six months.

Two-time Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Marshall Curry tells this harrowing and sometimes humorous story of a young man's search for political revolution and personal transformation.

Never lose yourself ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
http://justdharma.com/s/3h2ny

Live your daily life in a way that you never lose yourself. When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself.

– Thich Nhat Hanh
