Touching the Self or the self?
Nick: I have just read the Self-Esteem and Parenting document you sent me.
Here is how it kind of went:
Oh, that’s interesting, I like this… read on.
Oh, hang on… Er, what? I don’t like that.
Arggghh, no, that can’t be me.
I don’t do all the nice things I do to make up for the fact that I just don’t know myself…
I like the bit where it’s my parents’ fault…
Flinch… cower, ouch, ouch, that isn’t right.
I’m not like that… it’s all my own ignorance.
The self-loathing is actually just lack of self-knowledge.
Please, arrghh, no more, stop reading.
Phew, okay, onto the logical Vedantic reasoning bit…
Shit, that makes more sense than anything I’ve ever read before.
And tell James that it is without touching myself OR taking a cold shower.
Sundari: Which self would you be talking about here?
Nick: Pure gratitude for sending what is probably one of the most important things I will ever know.
PS: Please ignore any residual vasanic overtones of neediness for attention from others in perceived positions of superiority and importance via continued email spamming.
This matter is one of those currently under observation and will be resolved ASAP.
Thank you for your continued patience.
