"More about The Paradox of Freedom: that self-control, discipline is needed to find True Freedom. In other words, I use discipline to give up talking, meat, movement, integration with women, when I agree to spend ten days of silence in Vipassana…"

Jeanne commented on Terry's group Vipassana Meditation
"it seems we are forever going back and forth... with the either/or. Such is the beauty of the middle path it is receptive to both light and dark, cold and hot, male and female... and always seeking balance. We modern folk are not even close to a…"

"Actually, it was a Egyptian who Moses (when he was young) killed, and I never got the motive or that there was any retribution or remorse. Then again, I have never studied the Bible extensively. If anyone knows any better enlighten me. I guess I was…"

I'm thinking Oregon has got some of the coolest people on the planet! Glad you went. I'm having a hard time keeping up with the practice, but there are lessons learned that will never be forgotten.

Best,
Mike
