Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

Adamantine, you sound like being in delirium!
The issue has already been solved and everybody is relaxed here!
If you like, please read the previous posts.
Your attacks are personally against me. You give me advices that I never asked etc.
I never insulted you, because I have nothing against you. I know nobody personally from Dharma Wheel.
The only thing I know for you is your nickname "Adamantine" which in fact is female, like Sönam said yesterday.
According to my language and some others which have genders, Adamantine indicates the female gender, Adamantinos the male, and Adamantino is the neutral. :applause:

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

Practicing the dharma does not depend on the kind of activity we do ...

You're the one who started talking about the Greek roots of words, and you weren't saying it was off topic when you were citing examples to make your point.

From Wikipedia:

The Phoenician phonetic alphabet was adopted and modified by the Greeks probably at the 8th century BC (around the time of the hippoi depictions). This most likely did not come from a single instance but from a culmination of commercial exchange. This means that before the 8th century, there was a relationship between the Greeks and the Phoenicians. It would be very possible in this time that there was also an adoptation of some religious ideas as well. Herodotus cited the city of Thebes (a city in central Greece) as the place of the importation of the alphabet. The legendary Phoenician hero Cadmus is credited with bringing the alphabet to Greece, but it is more plausible that it was brought by Phoenician emigrants to Crete, whence it gradually diffused northwards.
