“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Greetings Mike,

In the context of Nana's quoted, that would be to "acquiesce to the view" (albeit implicitly).

Metta,

From debates of this sort one may validly conclude that as soon as words of monks or commentaries are preferred to the words of the Buddha issues are likely to arise.

Kind regards

If you want a purely philosophical discussion of this issue, see Samanera Bodhesako's CHANGE:

https://pathpress.wordpress.com/bodhesako/change/

It boils down to this question:

"Does ketchup pour faster for enlightened beings?"
