Thank you for the interesting post, I'm looking forward to reading the linked articles.

Very nice humoures and funny Post!!
and there is truth in this contradictional ideaś
Its called ´wisdom´

An apt list Brian, much of which I’m sure most people can identify with. It strikes me that all of them revolve around the demands of the ‘me’, ‘self’ or ‘ego’ particularly: “It’d be great if everybody agreed with me.” No doubt much of the reason we often engage in to-and-fro dialogues, is to have our point of view recognised – makes one’s ego feel good and justified to be right.

I also recognise: “I’m making progress on my spiritual journey.” Much of Buddhism is forever pointing out the trap of wanting something from our particular practice and meditation (quite normal). Generally, they are saying you are already a Buddha and prescribe the appropriate practice(s) to realise that – often practice that go against our expectations and common sense.

Also: “I’ve got to live more in the here and now.” Yes, Tollifson expresses this well in your post of January 22nd.

Interesting perspective.

And now I count all the strong towering trees in my life…

Karma is not the Supreme Law. It’s just a law…

The Supreme Law is Grace.
