I don't know about you, Scott, but I guess I tend to think a bit too much and talk a bit more still.
So predictably I went through a period when I tried to figure out enlightenment and tell everyone about it. I thought I did a fine job of it too. But at the end of the day, dinner does need to be cooked and the house does need to be cleaned and while theorising is a fine and noble pursuit, it doesn't make things happen.
So I suppose most folks here would be more interested in how you
do these things you wrote about. To hear about your practice. The rest is what sometimes goes by the name of "papanca" - mental proliferations. Buddhism, I guess, is walking the walk, and there is no substitute for those sore feet, it seems.
