A descoberta e o desespero

Vagando pela Amazon.com, descobri que alguns autores mantêm ou mantiveram blogs. Em meio a uma pesquisa sobre a não-violência, uma incipiente paixão que vem pulsando em minha mente já faz algum tempo (por razões éticas; tudo que escrevi até hoje como acadêmico veio, em primeiro lugar, de preocupações dessa ordem), descobri este senhor, Paul R. Fleischman. Ele é praticante da meditação Vipássana, a mesma experimentada por uma repórter da revista Época e descrita numa comovente matéria reproduzida aqui em janeiro. O primeiro parágrafo do último post de Fleischman me chamou a atenção, e deixo-o aqui como um convite para que meus leitores o conheçam melhor:

"The more thoughtful and intelligent the person, the deeper their scrutiny of life, and therefore the more they are subject to despair. Despair is what the Buddha called the First Noble Truth, the realization of the human plight. No political platform or social action can ultimately solve our problem: what will happen to me when I die? Where will I be, how can I endure being nothing forever? Our planet floats in a milky way of worlds in infinite time. What can possibly be the point of my life?"
