And I don't regret it. It's probably better than sticking up 7-11's or over-indulging in chocolate or being more-overtly unkind in one way or another.
But, without meaning offense to others, I do sincerely wonder if such an interest is what Jesus or Gautama or Mohammad or any of the other good teachers had in mind when they laid out their teachings.
A good teacher would wish for your happiness, don't you think? Not a 'spiritual' happiness -- just happiness without any add-ons.
No one adds stuff on when they're happy. They're just happy.
Would a good teacher wish for anything less than that?
I doubt it.
16,425 days ... that's a lot of days that required no add-ons.
Oh well -- life is profligate. For this reason, it is called "loving."
The profligate never care much what anyone calls them.
