“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

Physical Buddhism

More evidence that Buddhism isn't what the not well mylenated smash crew who use Nagarjuna as a blunt instrument say it is:

You can almost convince yourself that you’ve accomplished things just by thinking about them. The alternative is to be more realistic. You don’t necessarily regard the dreaming process as bad or an obstacle, but it’s not realistic enough. Action speaks louder than words. You should regard the daydreams as pure thought patterns. In the situation of fantasizing, you need to relate with earth, the physical situations of life.

Trungpa Rinpoche
