I would be inclined to say that fortunately there isn't "the best and only valid way to practice". Otherwise practice would indeed be an extremely limited thing.

Nice post, Paul!
“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

Sure Retro, no need for another "the tension is in your perception" sermon.

I'm happy to test-drive my version of Buddha-Dhamma without claiming that some other versions are not Buddha-Dhamma. Are you willing to do the same?

OK, thank you for your clarification then. Clearly I have misread much of what you have written in the past, so I guess I should apologise. I look forward to not misinterpreting your statements about Buddha-Dhamma and later additions the way I did in the past as being arguments that your approach is more in line with what the Buddha taught than some other approaches.
