Reader comment on Byron Katie's passage ...

Staying In Your Own Business

What would the Buddha say?  The four noble truths, the eight fold path, the 5 or 8 precepts, all of these are for a single person to understand and practice.  You can't self-clean by involving yourself in others.  Many of the reflections here from others just get me more confused.  It's rather simple, though like AA, it's hard to practice: stay in your business.  Yes, it's simple and what?  Do you really know more than the Buddha or Jesus?  Do you have a better way?

 These are good questions and points Mark.  My response is non-attachment.  Also the heart of Jesus and Buddha’s teaching is non-attachment.  It is just this simple and it allows one to fall into the true self where there is no need to accomplish anything.

 Buddha has 3 gems: buddha, dhamma, and sangha. Sangha is ignored nowadays or not considered as important as the other 2. Gandhi and others have indicated that service is a path, so it is possible to 'self-clean by involving yourself in others.'
