Bad Day Cup is trying to get a handle on why we suffer. When we join a group with a bent world view (all group world views have a bend in the of some sort), we see the world with a bend in it. But we can’t see the bend because we are inside the cup in an alphabet soup of the mind. This is a powerful problem today because world views with their unique bends in their cup are proliferating, and everyone want so belong to and get in a cup for protection. Alphabet soup must have a cup. Thinking must have a cup, a mind and a Thinker. But this mind unconsciously shaped by the bend in your cup.
The spiritual journey begins at some turning point when you realize that you cannot remove the suffering in your life by fixing, diluted, increasing heating or cooling the soup. You have tried all that, and still your life has this bend in it. You life wobble like a car out of alignment and drives to the left or the right.
When we turn within in a meditation practice and mindfulness (which is watching the soup spell letters with curiosity), we begin to sense the bend in the Bad Day Cup. The bent world begins to become transparent to the real world which is not bent.
Instead of an World Idea cup of a religion or ideology and political view holding my mind, reality becomes my cup, and reality is not bent or divided or bad. Seeing the world as a good or bad cup is bent by morality. Moral soup is the worst soup because it divides itself into good and bad soup in the same cup. A moral whirlpool is created by the moral spoon stirring the soup around and around as it tries to get rid of the bad soup.
