Sorry in advance to all the tree-huggers out there who can’t bear to know that trees get pulped to save my bind, but the Bounty is seriously having a soothing effect on my practice. Also, it helps to practice near a window. But I found today that I wiped my sweat far LESS when I could wipe it more effectively. And there were no falling portraits. And practice truly rocked.
As for Ahimsa – the practice of nonviolence – we do what we can. Or at least I do what I can. I am sure that there are aspects of my life that could use some overhaul, but for all of those who point fingers, well, as they say, when you point, there are usually three fingers still pointing back at you. My use of Bounty may be less than non-violent with respect to long-term effects on the environment, but then, I would say that my words and manner of speaking and identifying my comments on other peoples’ blogs is more non-violent than my various “anonymous” commenters who hide under “anonymous” in order to post their judgements in coarse and unkind tones. When have something not-so-nice to say, I either say it with my own name to back it up and take my punishment accordingly, or if I can’t bear to sign my name, then it is a sure sign that I am saying something of which I am not proud.
Off I go. Time to pick up the kiddies. More on this later, maybe.
