Recognizing your own difficulties
It’s hard. We ought not to be too harsh to judge. It’s hard business to be conscious.
If we are honest I’m almost sure most of us might say “best was to be asleep at night and worst to wake up again”.
I mean all this “shedding light into oneself” is exhausting in comparison to being asleep at night (if not dreaming that is).
I think Buddha was onto something when teaching Pari-nibbana as the “final goal”.
… oh man, all this forum writing is so exhausting. I should have stayed in bed!

@shargrol - apparently we were all much funnier back then. This thread is hilarious.
