The Reality of Materiality, with Greg Thomas

Buddhist Geeks

In this episode Vince Fakhoury Horn is joined in dialogue with journalist, educator, & scholar Greg Thomas to meditate together on race. Greg’s work is informed by Integral Theory, the philosophies of Albert Murray and Ralph Ellison, and draws upon the rich history of the African American experience and Jazz. In this dialogue, Greg shares his reflections on race, from an integral perspective, exploring the potential for liberation–especially from racial ignorance & animus–on personal, cultural, & institutional levels.Memorable Quotes“Race is just one more tool of the ego to separate and to create structures–whether it’s subjective, inter-subjective or objective structures–to separate, divide and categorize.” - Greg Thomas“There is a truth to the fact that we all are one, and that we share in the ineffability of the source, of the fullness of emptiness.  And all these things that signify–because we’re using human language–that our origins, our source, from and through which all things come and flow, and towards which we’re moving.  But in-between time, on this human level, in this particular incarnation we have to deal with the reality of materiality, of the material plane that we’re on.  That materiality itself, is going to bring suffering.  Duality will do that.  Non-duality is Oneness.  We have to navigate skillfully, using skillful means.  And that’s where we get to Wisdom.  Wisdom allows us to be able to play with these dualities. ... [Wisdom] takes into consideration I, We, & It, it takes into consideration the dual & the non-dual, it takes into consideration the reality of the oneness and the particularity of the many.” - Greg Thomas“They have planted and we ate. We plant and others will eat.” - Siddho Ahmad Fakhoury, Vince’s Great-Grandfather on planting olive treesEpisode Notes:👤 Greg Thomas’s Online Portfolio👤 The Jazz Leadership Project👤 Greg Thomas @ Integral Life🔗 Integral Life👤 Diane Musho Hamilton👤 Anthony Appiah👤 Danielle Allen @ Twitter📃 Ralph Ellison📖 “My Grandmother’s Hands” by Resmaa Menakem📖 “Turning the Wheel: Essays on Buddhism and Writing” by Charles Johnson👤 Bell Hooks🔗 Essentialism📖 “Mindful of Race” by Ruth King📃 Jazz vs. Racism by Greg Thomas📖 “The Ethics of Identity” by Kwame Anthony AppiahSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Evolving Race and Culture - A conversation with Phil Anderson and Greg Thomas

The Daily Evolver

We are in a cultural moment regarding race where we can literally see and feel the movements of history. It’s making for many great conversations among integralists, and in this episode I share one I enjoyed recently with two evolutionary thinkers, Greg Thomas and Phil Anderson. Our topics include differentiating the often-conflated concepts of race, culture and development … recognizing and harmonizing both poles of the culture war … and exploring the uniquely cosmopolitan role that Black folks play in the ever-accelerating evolution of humanity. As always you are welcome to join the conversation by writing to me at jeff@dailyevolver.com or leaving a voice mail here. Greg Thomas, CEO of the Jazz Leadership Project, is a writer, intellectual, and entrepreneur. Greg was instrumental in developing programs such as the National Jazz Museum in Harlem’s flagship interview series, Harlem Speaks. He has written about culture, race, and democratic life in publications ranging from the Village Voice, Integral+Life, New Republic, Salon, UPTOWN, The Root, the Guardian Observer, and the New York Daily News—as jazz columnist. Greg has lectured on American cultural history and jazz at Columbia, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Hamilton College, and Harvard. His blog is Tune In To Leadership. Phil Anderson has a background in electronics hardware design and software engineering and has spent the last few decades engaged in various Internet-related entrepreneurial activities. An epiphany that occurred in 2007 when trying to model the process of evolutionary emergence using engineering control theory concepts led Phil to the idea of Holons, Holarchies and Wilber’s Integral theory, although because of how Phil arrived at Integral thinking, he retains his own unique holonic Integral perspective. His blog is published at Integral World. The post Evolving Race and Culture appeared first on The Daily Evolver.
