My public display name for my WordPress profile is The Sublime Abiding (although few probably noticed), and this post gives that term some context.
I first came across the term ‘the sublime abiding’ in the book The Heart of the Revolution by Noah Levine. I have a little more written about the book in my favorite books tab here.
Traditionally the meaning is Buddhist.
- loving-kindess (metta)
- compassion (karuna)
- empathetic joy (mudita)
- equanimity (upekkha)
However, I preferred to base it off the definition from the book.
It is explained as the happiest place to be, an enlightened way of being, a cool place to hang out, or an internal place of ease..
I want my website to feel like this when I’m engaged in writing posts or working on the site.
For me, the site would be a place where I approach my life in a peaceful way.
