Thoughts on the battle between long and short-term desires.
The following podcast is a guest contribution, part of the September “BIG QUESTION” series, asking “What does America Want?”
Americans are also human. Theoretically.
So expanding the question “What does America want?” today are writers and Pureland Buddhists Fiona Robyn and Kaspalita, who were kind enough to dedicate their weekly Tuesday podcast to the question: “What does humanity want?”
Please enjoy the podcast, here or at their lovely blog, which is simulcasting today. And comment on.
For those writers in the world, you might also enjoy their wonderful writing community, “Writing our Way Home.” I know I do.
Thanks Fiona and Kaspa!
