Al, Not exactly. Im not saying do as I say. Im only offering my opinion. Im also not saying do as I do. Im just offering my insight on what I do, especially when that is or appears contradictory with what say.
But then Im not the one who claims to be the reincarnation of a Buddhist saint. Im not the one who has written 10s of books teaching Buddhist precepts to wealthy Westerners. Im not the one who is coordinating or at least encouraging a people to fight for their attachments. Im not the one who lives in exile and travels around the world like a rock star with thousands of fawning sycophants. Im not the one who is an inspiration to the intellectual giants like Richard Gere, and the female movie start (whose name escapes me right now) that voiced her Buddhist opinion that the earthquake in China just might be KARMAs way to punish the Chinese people for their mistreatment of Tibet. Now there would be someone worthy of you doing what they say, but not doing what they do. I am JUST THIS! BILL!
