I do love the priciples of a lay person but a part of me think there lesser than monks. I dono. I follow the 12 steps of alcoholics anymous. I guess u can look them up if your curious. But it's really all about getting rid of old ideas clearing away the reckage of the past and helping others. Us that good enough????
Huh?Hanzze wrote:As the precepts/compassion is the first active step, not archived a good amount of it meditation leads only to the opposite (harder believe on opinion or believe).
The "huh?" had to do with not understanding what you said, which is a frequent failing of mine.Hanzze wrote:But, tiltbillings,. . .

you get to know your self, when you stay there what actually is. Do you think that in the present, without future and past innocence can be loosed? As long as you take the things simple and stay as well as possible in the present, you will be always innocent. The past is gone.
Kim gave a real good advice, be just mindful in your actions (without history or future) and give your family always a chance. I guess it is good to spend more time with the family and I am sure in some month you will know for you self.
But like always just an opinion, trust you innocence/your heart!
No need to become something what already is.
