thought for the day----> it is important to understand, not intellectually but actually in your daily life, how you have built images about your wife, your husband, your neighbour, your child, your country, your leaders, your politicians, your gods……you have nothing but images…..these images create the space between you and what you observe and in that space there is conflict…….
