No, Thank You. I already have much of the infant's mentality, the lack of duality, the awareness, the "no-mind" - to discard all of what I have "learned" so far would be to discard my true self.
The typical five year old has many concepts and ideas, they are possessive, materialistic, extreme in their sense of duality, some even expect others to serve them - that is nothing I strive towards being. If all children naturally developed as Buddhas, there would be no need for Buddhism to exist. -Lana On Wed, Nov 24, 2010 at 3:36 PM, Maria Lopez <flordel...@btinternet.com>wrote: > > > > *Lana wrote: * > *So I ask: How do you interact with the people in this world?* > * * > *Dear Lana:* > *Have a warm welcome to us..
