Well, I try to take ego out of things, but it was nice to get the question. So here we go....
"I love your blog, but I have a question. Does being on this 'path' or religion mean that you have to give up everything fun? I mean, what do you like? What do you do for fun? You don't just sit around in silence all day, right? You seem like a good guy...Tell me about you."
First, let me clear up some mis-conceptions. My path is not a religion. It is not a systematic path of following a doctrine that someone wrote down a few hundred years ago. It is not an interpretation of someone else's ideals or views. It is simply and unveiling. It is a process of removing the cover to reveal the truth that has ALWAYS existed without opinion.
On this path, let me make one thing clear: No one can teach you anything. You already know the answers. All a "teacher" can do is REVEAL the truth. The truth is there. Just reach out for it. Close your eyes, shut up for 10 minutes and it will come to you. I promise.
So what do I "like" and what do I do for fun?
