Hi, Ed, Anthony
To help the others you should be able.
Without the oxygen mask, you could not help.
Extrem: only an oxygen mask.
Well, probably I will renounce to it on behalf of anyone that is in my heart (
(yes, attachement. But compassion is also attachement, as I understand)
Any listizen have read Alfred Van Vogt books on Non-A worlds?
He said a thing that I find relevant: the word is not the thing, although many
(myslef included) think in terms of words, not things. You should trascend
words. I equal it to trascend duality.
Disclaimer: alfred got blind because he tried to cure his miopy looking at sun,
as per a "something" that erases all dismissing mentions to it in internet
With best wishes

You say: Of what use is a dead bodhisattva to anyone?
My suggestion: fly to Dharamsala and ask Dalai Lama. (It is an
essential mahayana teaching that you should help others before helping

A mother who really cares for her child will put on her own oxygen
On the other hand, "The life of an enlightened being is like the
shadow of a bird on water."
