Country in search of firefly

America's decission to ellect Trump as their new president created an interesting and intriguing wave of anti-trump supporters around Europe. The situation in Romania is the one I tried to examine and in doing so I managed to outline the two most important ellements that draged down the country since the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, corruption and lack of education. The ~elite~ of the country was not capable to withstand the tempations of taking easy and unearned money in exchange for factories they had no desire (and knowledge) to modernize and make competitive. The state, the biggest buyer, began choosing products form outside because the ones signing the contracts for these products got some easy money that way. The other ellement is the educated young and urban people who are most often educated fools mainly because of the way the system devolved.

The Eye of the Heart

The Eye of the Heart refers at a symbolic level to the perception of Divinity. Anyone who is on the winding road towards awakening know that this statement contains many more works than those written. If you, for whatever reason, don't understand the levels of thought in that phrase then maybe this book is exactly what you need. Schuon is a "practitioner" and a "believer" and this makes his work to be something more than a pure academic text, it comes to help in the search of the seeker. From the beginning, this eye of the heart will be explained followed by a segment dedicated to knowledge (that among other segments) composing the first part of the book dedicated to "Metaphysics and Cosmology".
