Im sorry? If you read my last posts you would see that i have asked some questions of my own and even posted a quote from Ajahn Chah in agreement with you. And even if i was arguing with you how would your last post to me benefited the O.P? It seems to me your last post would keep an imaginary argument going. Sorry for the misunderstanding

Maybe there is some misunderstanding ....? :shrug:

My post above was asking a question about this post of yours immediately preceding it ... it wasn't making a statement about you:
bodom said: I agree with Sujato. Meditate instead of arguing over meditation.
