nice article (technically)..but I surely see also the danger as pointed out by the reply of Bei Yin. To ad also a critical but appreciating comment. It's not entirely about the article but about it's base/ foundation. actually the first sentence,, .'let our intentions be good.' What is good? what is intention? what is the action (of letting be)? We write about it if intention and good are two separate things. If there is a commonsense or common-consensus of 'good' and the values that this contains and that intention is a thing we let happen. Maybe it’s just me, and that is certainly the case, but I see things this way; If one doesn’t dissociate oneself from his or her intention and trains oneself to walk in line with this intention we won’t have to spend energy in forging ourselves on terms like good or intention. We wouldn’t have to spend any energy in creating world images of good behavior and their fruits. Instead we would just create, we do every moment. And the fact that there are billions of people around just means you are not alone, make use of that instead of convicting it.
Thank you, Rick Hanson for the article, Grenville Kleisser for the quote, Bei Yin for drawing my attention to it, ‘dailygood’ for placing and distributing it on internet, internet for the world wide context, and the world for creating this medium….special thanks to creation (the action and the result….)
Just one thing: If my intention is commonsense than what is it that makes it ‘my’ intention? If my intention is not commonsense than what is it that makes it ‘my’ intention?
