Just now: 6.9! It was like being in old train. Had to run out. I does give a sense of urgency. ... I am hearing fire brigades outside. It is still shaking.... another second severe one 5.2.
Thanks for the update Bhante. Hope nothing's fallen off the shelves and been damaged up there.

"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven BodhesakoNanavira Thera's teachings - An existential approach to the Dhamma
