Dear Dharmavidya, I've just read your writing on Contrition. As usual,you always know how to get right into my heart!Contrition is indeed born from honesty.Admitting our Bombu reality is so freeing.However, I'm caught in the Self-power/ Other-power quandry.If we accept our Bombu state, how do we proceed? Do we still strive while knowing we can never do it "perfectly"? To some the Bombu paradigm doesn't gel with our bootstrapping indoctrination.How have you navigated our perennial tightrope walk?
Namo Amida Bu, Steve

J'ai toujours pensé que la véritable communication  ne pouvait se faire qu'en face-à-face et que les communications virtuelles - si communes aujourd'hui sur les réseaux sociaux - ne sont que de déplorables pis-aller. Pourtant, à la réflexion, il me semble qu'il convient de corriger ce point de vue par trop simpliste. Certes, rien ne vaut la richesse d'une rencontre réelle où les paroles ne sont qu'un élément d'un ensemble où tout peut devenir signifiant. Les mots s'accompagnent de toute une…
