    Somik, thanks much for the opportunity to respond to Sharon Salzberg's brief article. After reading her article, I think of the 10th stage of the ox-herding story and pictures where one's whole  life becomes a meditation .  The meditator (during  waking hours) brings joy to everyone around him or her, as well as herself.    Meditation is both brought about by generosity and the generosity brings about the meditation while the meditator is detached and may be seen as no one going, nowhere.

    Let us each forgive ourselves again, and again, and again when we are not at that tenth stage.  Lets each of us give ourselves permission to be where we are and then there'll be a greater likelihood of growth. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
