Quote

When self-centeredness comes to an end, we discover not that our “self” has ceased to exist but that the self is not what we thought. The self is no longer an inner sanctum of private experience or a narrow set of personal needs or expectations. Our world is our self, rather than our self being our world. Rather than constantly trying to impose our self onto life, we realize that all of life is who and what we are. Or, as Dogen put it: “To carry the self forward and illuminate myriad things is delusion. That the myriad things come forth and illuminate the self is awakening.

Notebooks

If you’re in the market for a new computer, consider getting a notebook. Notebooks use around 4x less energy, use fewer resources (including packaging, peripherals, hardware, cables, etc), require less energy to ship, and they’re completely portable and take up far less space than the alternative. Sure, they cost a bit more but once you start adding up all of the benefits, notebooks are a great option to that big clunky mess on, under, and behind your desktop.
