So why would Gregs comment and energy be better spent elsewhere?
It seems as if that were the case, you are already enlightened.
Kindest wishes, Dave
That would be the case had there been any sincerity within the words previously written. Words are inherently meaningless, as were the ones spewing from the fingers. The intention of mockery is hardly subtle, whatever energy he does have would be better spent elsewhere, as I said.
Would Buddha condone wasting energy on mockery? Would he condone a wolf to play a sheep? If he is displaying Buddha's love for all sentient beings, I fail to see it. The intention of the heart is the determining factor.
His intentions were not pure, that was obvious, and later proven with his proceeding remarks.

And Tecnix called the wisdom Ignorance, and the ignorance he called Wisdom (since it was his ignorance and he couldn't bear to admit that he was ignorant, so what else could he possibly call it?). And there was evening and there was morning, the first (and hopefully last) day.
