I can try to be receptive, but I also believe 88.88% of us are fixated on being 
right on our own beliefs.

It's optional, but if I am to spend time explaining to you how I understand 
Tibetan Buddhist Tantrayana, I need to assure myself that you are receptive, 
and are not fixated in being 'right' about some belief of yours about Tibetan 
Buddhist Tantrayana.

Anthony, in my belief,  99.99% of us are not aware of our true motivation 
99.99% of the time.
PS: Hint: Actually, it's very simple: Deep down it's always the egocentric 
obsession of the "I/Me/Mine" (Austin's *operational* definition of 'ego'.)
