UN : This isn’t complacency, no no.
The Buddhas : Well, then what is it?
UN : You tell me. You should know.
The Buddhas : Hmmm, let’s gather the facts.
UN : Let’s.
The Buddhas : You start out early.
UN : Yeps.
The Buddhas : Read spiritual literature over 25+ years.
UN : Yeah.
The Buddhas : Do various spiritual practices, again over 25+ years.
UN : Yawn.
The Buddhas : And now you’ve landed with Buddhism.
UN : Lucky me.
The Buddhas : You’ve got power. You can pull. Also, you are able to connect directly.
UN : Do I still have to do all the reading?
The Buddhas : Study has the stamp of authenticity.
UN : You’re saying that during direct connection, there might be an element of doubt…
The Buddhas : …yes, sometimes, you mightn’t realise when your mind is playing tricks on you.
UN : I’ll give you that. Study is fine, but I’d like to go at my own speed.
The Buddhas : You’re letting it come to you, aren’t you, in a pre-digested fashion?
UN : Bottomline is, that I’m assimilating. In a different manner, but learning nevertheless.
The Buddhas : Also, you’ve always been unorthodox, so we’re not surprised.
UN : Let’s plane out the complacency angle, can we?
The Buddhas : Lingering and not doing Gongyo and Daimoku, what is that?
UN : Fear of overdoing.
The Buddhas : You fear that even this might go away, like your other spiritual practices?
UN : Yes. I want this to stay. So, not overplaying the card. Going with the flow.
The Buddhas : Hmmm, you can go all out but aren’t, we see.
UN : As of now I’m just happy taking whatever time windows open up.
The Buddhas : And you’re not pushing to create extra windows.
UN : Exactly. I know my game, and I know my game’s pitfalls.
The Buddhas : So you’re steering clear of the pitfalls.
UN : Yes.
The Buddhas : Ok.
