By the way, if anyone wants to question or challenge anything I say, in the manner that I am putting others on the spot, go right ahead. I won't waste your time with cagey answers, cloaked in innuendo, with a wink and a nod. I'll tell you straight up, whatever you ask, as truthful and complete an answer as I am able to provide. I've had it with the "bombastic claim with the eel-wriggling follow up" on this forum. Not that i expect that to go away anytime soon. Just sayin, in case anyone is wondering - I can take what I dish out.
"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230
