About this title Synopsis: Two contemporary teachers reply to the e-mail questions of their students, questions which concern the full range of the students' lives, from the fine points of Buddhist teachings to the nitty-gritty details of relationship, work, family life and interpersonal conflict.
Altruism is folded into this, too. This could be clearer; anyway. More sex scandals!
And this guy has done some really brilliant stuff that has been personally helpful. I should write about sex scandals and meditation teachers, eventually. My point is that I want to guard against unintentionally making bad tradeoffs between my stuff being transparently accessible and me profiting from my stuff.
I want people to like me and want to hang out with me, and I want money, and I want people to have unimpeded access to everything I know.
Or, my non secret identity will remove almost all pressure to be anything but someone who viciously, brilliantly, systematically makes everything they know transparently accessible. And, remember, that ethical navigation is always ongoing: When one writes about these dynamics and even refers back to them, they are still happening. Those dynamics can even appropriate and metabolize and wield explications of themselves in the service of their aims. And pretty central to their approach, and their style as teachers, and their personality, is not take neurosis seriously.
I think uncharitably what you observe with Folk is perhaps more a reflection of his own neurosis, rather than something that is integral to his teaching.

I try to be kind to people and to maintain a sense of humour. My humour could be seen as helpful or unhelpful, depending on your view. You could find my humour irritating, my attempts at kindness inept, my commitment to the lineage one of blind faith. Thank you for graciously weighing in. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Striving for rigorous and conceptually clear meditation instruction with one mediate goal being safe, wide distribution. Getting far beyond stream-entry and into "full classical enlightenment territory" is doable in under 2, hours of practice, possibly in under 1, hours or even less. Keep a timelog and never try to skip or bypass or rush anything.
Correct practice doesn't always feel good of course. More importantly, incorrect practice doesn't always feel bad and often feels good.

General content note: A lot of my thinking has really changed since the old days of this blog. I recently finished skimming E-Mailing the Lamas from Afar. Already having the knowledge, I was able to see the signal in the text, and even derive some benefit from it… Why does oblique, cryptic teaching persist?
