:rbow: LOL, spoken like a true Bodhisattva... and bows to all who don't ask. It's a mystery, isn't it. As much as I'd like to think I let go, the truth is that it let go of me.... like wind blowing thru a reed.

:Namaste:

Yessirree, Baba-Louie. Different for each of us, I have to suspect.

Younger, I could bench-press 225#; now, 145#. Maybe just a matter of choice ...I now spend more time with my Rosebushes, instead. :tongueincheek:

I'm aiming for a kilo (2.2 pounds).
It ain't easy. It isn't sane. I can't let go.

Sorry desert. Did not see the Dharma video.
Funny, i did not reflect on it the least. Just scroled down and wrote like thet. It has happened befor you see an interesting thred and you just write somthing in the dark.
I like Thich Nhat Hanh he is a great guy, but i am in a face where im not so interested in Dharma face at the moment, it feels like to "strict and ordered" for my now a days. I will retorn to it one day!
Maybe i shuld not write on the forum til thet day.

Have it good!
