In that case I think what you intended to convey is quite agreeable.
"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 Bodhesako

Wow....I'm flattered..... implying that my youthful discernment has made me famous is liabel to turn my pretty little head. Also notice that my post was in direct response to the notion that no one would be interested in viewing it which as I have pointed out seems to be mistaken....some people have suggested that viewing of sexual images is the major use of the web....I don't know this...I've just heard people claim this.
