I like his straight on meditation stuff better, but his thoughtful parsing of the strands of all the Buddhist belief systems is impeccable. Much, much insight for so few pages.
There most def is an emerging American Buddhism and Goldstein is its most compelling and easy to take spokesman.
"self" and "no self." To help us understand this complex thought he illustrates a moment in a movie theater in which we are completely involved with the story on the screen.Our emotions are tied up with what's going on there. Yet, if we look up and focus on the beam of light projecting those images we realize that there is nothing really happening on the screen at all except for the play of light and color. Yet, when we are involved with the story it feels very real. On a relative level we are involved with our stories. On an ultimate level it's all a play of momentary, changing elements.
