Re: Mudita

I think Muditha is a result of seen the interconnected was and not seen someone’s success as a benefit rather than a threat.
Can the West appreciate the success of China when they see that as a threat and vice versa.

Re: Mental Fog

I am not sure of your condition. If you perfectly know what is going around you why bother?
To me you are perfect as you are aware of what is happening to you. You know you forget so what?
Keep a diary and a check list for most important things.

Re: Dhammapada verse 267

It does not mean that Arahants do not do wholesome acts. They still do wholesome actions but not with the expectation of merits.

Arhants thoughts are not rooted in greed delusion or hate... so can we say its impossible for them to generate pain mental feeling or any pain feeling generated by their thoughts? Perhaps I would say they don’t generate Kama Tanha,Bhava Tanha and Vibhava Tanha. How ever they still feel the painful ...

Why Buddha did not ask us to make a grand boat and cross the flood?

"Then, bhikkhus, it might occur to that man: 'Here is a great stretch of water... but no boat... nor a bridge...
