If you are determined to be an exceptional Japanese or American or Uyghur or Russian or Peruvian ...
If you are determined to be an exceptional stock broker or NASCAR driver or teacher or farmer...
If you are determined to be an exceptional lover or artist or psychologist or Scrabble player ...
If you are determined to be exceptional in thought, word and deed....
Then for heaven's sake, don't trouble yourself with Buddhism.
From where I sit, Buddhism contains no except's and for this reason offers no footing to exceptionalism, whether donned or imputed.
The refrigerator magnet observes, "Your life is so difficult that it has never been tried before."
No point in making it even more difficult, right?
No point in becoming an even bigger jackass.
No point in wasting time and energy.
Any exceptional person with a lick of sense needs to steer clear of Buddhism.
