The state in which one renounces the self and the material world whilst simultaneously partaking of all the pleasures that both have to offer.
For all of you who have ever wondered (and all of you who haven’t) what my Google Talk status message means. I see a lot of exorgorating going on as I look around the world, it’s an egocentric state and it seems to be endemic in certain groups (I’m looking at you New Age). And since “if you can spot it, you’ve got it” (1), I’ve got it as well.
- I think I first heard “if you can spot it, you’ve got it” at a Landmark Education Communications Access To Power Course but Google says it’s probably older than that. BTW I no longer want an “I see stupid people” T-shirt.
