I have already learned much from Nipun and Viral and from others who have responded to these communications. I am still far away from the dedication and genuineness of Nipun and Viral.
I say to myself, and occasionally to others, that it would be good for me to be no one, going nowhere. I use that in the sense of I am no separate self. At age 75 I am still often acting automatically. I often want much attention before I think and turn off my old automatic self. While meditating one day last week. I came to what I thought was a great insight, and that is that I do not have much insight. I at times think I want to be humble and other times I catch myself wanting other people to say, "look how good he is."
I read recently that the universe is only 4% matter as we know it and 96% dark energy and dark matter. It seems to me that I don't know much about anything so I experience it it is good not to know in an intellectual sense. I project that on to other people. Being compassionate to myself and others I believe is the way to live whether we know something and not. Without the notion of natural compassion I would never have found my unique way of living. I still have much to learn.
Thank you for continuing to give me the opportunity to respond.
