Yes, we have to work through our shi* together here.
OMF is a good place to work it out, but you have to be vocal and let yourself be vulnerable.
Take a risk.
Let love have its way.
Cultivate balance and walk don’t wobble.
No need to run ahead too quickly.
Those who rush ahead too fast will fall.
Patience comes with finding your balance and rhythm.
If there’s one thing about Dan it’s that he’s consistent with his own balance and rhythm.
He may still be living in the dream world, but that’s by his own choice.
We really have no choice but to be who and what we are.
Who we are is mostly a matter of what we do.
Been talking about quality with smelly in our other chat.
We have a few people in our other chat room we are working things out with.
In the book, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, the main character describes how his past self chased the understanding of quality. The problem started with the most basic question: what is quality really? Can you define quality without resorting to synonyms like perfection or virtue? Is quality objective or subjective? If it’s objective, then how come there’s no instrument to measure it yet? If, on the contrary, quality is subjective, then why does it matter so much and how come most people can agree about the quality of certain things?
smelly wrote: I dont care what anyone says or writes or thinks, but what they do, I suppose public writing is an act. I dont think about virtue anymore, I think about quality.
"Quality is the result of a million selfless acts of care—not just of any great method that descends from the heavens." -- James Coplien
Quality is subjective, based on our own self interest
Smelly and I both agree that Dan has a fine quality.
