Status Check

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.
