Mayka, I appreciate your understanding on this. I agree, I have experienced the ability to remain detatched from other's perspectives, no matter how negative. The longer I have stayed away from my practice, the more I found that "little" things can bother me. I am happy to say I have resumed my practice and it is going well. I have started re- visiting the temple I sent you info on in the past.
Thank you for your participation.
