I dunno, sounded like ba ba ba. Perhaps I'm already outside the box. Pushing, not pulling or dragging, the envelope.

Neat= something that is kind of cool. But I don"t think the idea that I've used the word envelope twice so far is neat. Or amazing.

Neat is something my house is not.

If it was up to my son and wife alone to tidy things up, that's a pretty accurate assessment of how things would look.

i heard bah bah bah :shrug:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
