Re: How I Found Freedom

Regarding Kindle Unlimited, I tried it but found less to read after 4 weeks and cancelled in 3 months. Any thoughts on Kindle Unlimited? If you like romance novels and other for the masses kinda stuff it may be good for you. If you are more into substance, not so much. SIgn up for a couple of month...

Re: Purpose of the PP

I am a recovering Buddaholic. But today I had a good day.

I typed up a response (reaction) to Budd's latest. Accurate, filled with facts, witty, with a slight bit of snark...but then I deleted it.

Today, was a good day. 8)

Re: Fear is the mind-killer

You continue to intrigue me, PS. Finish the quote... I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. Precisely. I no longer fight my fear to ...
