  1. Sorry I don't have a question but I do have an a-ha to share. Maybe that will give you something to write about. I realized that giving up is not the same as letting go. That realization shifted my thought. Thanks for listening. PS

  2. From the self-mastery class--the victim/accountability model--how does this process fit into the situation of, say, a hate crime towards someone who is gay, or say, a major scapegoating incident where the "victim" is innocently standing there and wham!!bam!!violence and harm has happened. Is there such a thing as innocence in this situation? How does one come to terms with owning or allowing such treatment to oneself when group mind and major ignorance is at play? The only thing I can think of is being in touch with one's intuition that should be loud and clear about where to be and when to get the heck out of wherever you are. Doesn't seem quite satisfactory. The crux of the matter is in the innocence, or feeling of innocence. Would you comment on what it means to be innocent and vulnerable without being a victim to others who have no permission to allow this innocence or vulnerability? Thanks for considering this anyway...

  3. Hi Edward,

    Love the blog. It starts my day with positive reinforcement. Question, When an individual decides to leave their body before we are ready for them to leave by means that we cannot understand, how can we resolve in our mind that not only is this a choice but how do we gently soothe our own souls in the process and bless their transition?

    Thank you for taking requests. A follow up to Francesca's question. If God is all there is, and we are all One, One Mind, but suicide is the choice for another human being,how do we further understand this choice in a metaphysical way...rather than just left feeling sadness and unrest? Perhaps a suggested reading to make sense of it? Respectfully, D.

  5. I am pondering the question of any if at all interrelation between the concept of duality. (ie. Light /Darkness Good/Evil Sharp/Dull) and the concept of dependent origination.

    When this is, that is.
    From the arising of this comes the arising of that.
    When this isn’t, that isn’t.
    From the cessation of this comes the cessation of that

    It seems to me that Darkness does rise out of Light etc. and the opposite. In seeming to point in a similar direction do these two ways of mind/reality interrelate or am I just confusing such with my intermingling (well... probably)? Though in another regard duality seems to apply to physical conditions ,whereas dependent origination is perceptual. This line of thinking certainly seems to tie my intellect in a bit of a gordian knot. I do suppose this ia all just distinctions in the dream.

    Any thoughts on this question would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You Edward
