Thanks Journey. I've set that aside to read again. Very useful post.

Hi tilt.

Don't get why are you offended by the sniper metaphor. What If he had said "a cat waiting to pounce". Would that have been better?
Thanks.

Thanks Mike. But in general usage is it fair to say there is such a thing as wrong mindfulness? Wallace was responding to that question.

You are more than welcome.
I added a thought, but you were too quick for me, and had replied by the time I posted it. My thought that was added:

Perhaps you could ask Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi what he objects to with regard to Christopher Titmuss's views, after all it was the Venerable that brought up Christopher Titmuss's name, not Wallace. ( see page 3 of the letter ).
Just a thought.

Thanks for your time.

Maybe it was stuff like this that Wallace was criticizing?
