One on One with the Chant

UN : I would like a seat.

The Chant (TC) : Make a seat for yourself. You have a big house. 

UN : I would like a seat which is not at the cost of something else.

TC : So you want a seat for free?

UN : I don’t wish to sacrifice family harmony in lieu for a seat.

TC : Ok. Seat will open. You need to get some family Karma out of the way before it opens. 

UN : Also, I don’t want a seat at the cost of my profession.

TC : Why? 

UN : I’ve fought very hard to put my profession together. 

TC : Fine. You’ll need to get some professional Karma out of the way, then.

UN : Before seat opens?

TC : Yes. 

UN : I mean, the current window for a “seat” is a bit of a killer.

TC : So what? I need to see how steadfast you are. Cling to me.

UN : On the treadmill, at 6 kmh, balancing, puffing and panting, and chanting – what if I fall?

TC : Cling to me. You’ll be fine. 

UN : Can’t it just be a straight-forward seat?

TC : It will be. First prove your steadfastness. Also, get your Gongyo going properly.

UN : Gongyo gets going properly with proper seat.

TC : Oh, a trade-off, is it?

UN : I do have some kind of say in it, or not? And what about meeting windows?

TC : What about them?

UN : I’ll need to show up at a meeting some time or the other. When does that window open?

TC : Do you want to show up?

UN : I don’t mind, but not at the cost of professional appointments or family harmony.

TC : And if those two are not affected, then do you want to show up?

UN : I’ll definitely give it a try.

TC : Over a one year period, some meeting windows will open. 

UN : When do they start opening? 

TC : Over the next six weeks, at least one meeting window will open.

UN : And be successfully utilized?

TC : Yes. 

UN : Ok, thanks, bye.

TC : Bye.
