An article by me (with the help of many friends) that appeared in Tricycle, 1/29/22. Their heading: "A Zen view of what awakening is and isn’t, with personal stories from contemporary practitioners."
This is available for public viewing.
They changed the text just a little from what I submitted to them, including in the sentence, "Following the band Crazy Horse, I call succeeding generations “helpless ones,” because, at least in part, they depend on our awakening today in order to awaken in the midst of a (likely) dystopian future with some unforeseeable degree of ecological and societal collapse," they added "band." It was the Lakota warrior Crazy Horse that used the "helpless ones" phrase.
It was quite a bit longer than what they had asked for so I expected that they'd cut quite a bit. I'm grateful that they let me have my say.
