The Razor’s Edge

(audio version available for paid subscribers)

The path of liberation Is as narrow as a razor’s edge.

The Razor’s Edge follows the spiritual arc of Larry Darrell from zero to enlightenment. At the beginning of the story Larry is a pretty normal young guy, destined to become a stockbroker, get married, have kids and jump out a window when the depression hits. Fine, but hardly the stuff of film or literature. Fortunately for us, someone throws a war and Larry’s invited. He goes and discovers how dead the dead look when they’re dead (terribly, btw). That death-awareness event provides him with a glimpse behind the veil and turns his life in a new direction, so he chucks one destiny and sets out to discover another. He goes to a lot of places and does a lot of stuff that includes the achievement of satori, samadhi, sainthood or somesuch, whatever that’s supposed to mean.
