Tired of being an underachiever? I have the solution - 2021 edition of 'Jhānitator Arahant Maker' coming soon.

excerpt:
We all know the path to success, to Arahantship. It's described in detail in suttas like AN 3.16, and the ones describing what it means to fulfill appamada, marana-s-sati, etc.

The problem is, we just don't follow through with it. We just look at it, think, yeah, that would be nice if we could do that, and then go back to doing some other dumb complacent heedless things we prefer to do.

My words are quite simple to understand
and so very easy to practice.
Yet of all under heaven, none are competent
of understanding, and not one is capable of
practicing them.

Excellent idea, tracking dhamma practice with a spreadsheet just like how you track your finance. We need more of this type of transparent approach to tracking and measuring dhamma practice.
Form is like a lump of foam, Feeling like a water bubble; Perception is like a mirage, Volitions like a plantain trunk, and consciousness like an illusion

The suttas say Arahants & Buddhas are immeasurable. :meditate:
There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.
