No it is not. "Recovering" is a term for "getting over" something such as alcohol, drugs, etc.jason c wrote: a recovering jew is a survivor of the holocaust.
Incredible. Unbelievable.jason c wrote: first hand experience. [regarding knowing that Jews are full of resentment]

you are not practicing the teachings of the buddha, practicing observing sensations is an excellent way of practicing mindfulness and you can do it walking, lying down, standing, etc...
planning is "thinking" and should be done mindfully, while observing sensations. instinct is what i'm talking about in a life threatening situation, you would not have time to think, the instinct for survival would naturally take over and you would simply take action.
recovering is just a word david, if you are trying to imply that i do not care about the jewish community then you are mistaken.
most of the carpentry work i do is for the jewish community, i've met alot of jews, they are no different than any other race of people. and yes, some are miserable examples of the human race in their current mindframes, and some are very wonderful. so again yes, some are incredible and some are unbelievable.
