“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Disgust and Horror in Buddhism

David Chapman writes eloquently about it. He also curates Buddhism for Vampires. Clearly this is my kind of Buddhism!

Tantra is for sure about working with disgust. Spit into your hand. Now lick the spit up. You feel disgusted? Why? That was in “your” mouth a second ago!
