The house is on fire, not only your little house but the house of your neighbour whether he is ten thousand miles away or just beyond the hedge. The world is on fire, and you must do something… JK
When I inquire, am I aware that my “house is on fire”? Do we have any real sense that “the world is on fire”? As we dialogue together, do we stay in our comfort zones; casually communicate from within the (apparent) safe space of our conditioned mind?
Why do I come to these dialogues? Am I concerned with my own well being or some kind of self-improvement in my life? Do I want to be liberated of the conflicts I experience with others or within myself? Perhaps I want to be more sensitive, clearer about my problems so that I can be happier and lead a better life. I want to break free: but am I unwilling to let go of the secure confinements of my own mind?
I see that fear, conflict, division and sorrow is holding the world in its grip. But what I am to do? I feel helpless both to solve my problems and those of the world! Do I perceive my own fear, sadness and inner conflict directly – is my inner house alight – or is there a division, a gap that extinguishes any real sense of passion or sensitivity to these conditions?
What will generate a fire of resolution to change? What will make our very inquiry imperative?
