Bodhisattvas in an Election Year - Case Nine - Supreme Court Rulings

The Supreme Court ruling on Health Care (so-called Obama Care) has given us a wonderful opportunity to see where we create dreams and delusions, hold to reactions and beliefs.

Where you happy with the ruling? What goal have you attained? What is attaining the goal?

Where you unhappy, even angry, about the ruling? What thoughts and feelings are you holding to? 

What is your practice in the midst of your reactions? Notice what you say, how you hear and read the various public statements made - and how you believe this and your conclusions about various public officials. 

What views, if any, do you hold about the various Supreme Court Justices?

When you heard the earlier Supreme Court ruling concerning the Arizona "illegal" immigration law, what were your reactions, if any, then? What did you believe about the Justices, about Arizona government, about Obama - and how are these now?

Such wonderful opportunities if we are able to notice, even if we are entangled, noticing entanglement is a wonderful opportunity. Please enjoy this and make good use of it. It is our life gift.
