Delete your post?(NOTE: I deleted them and caution that posts that are offensive or can be perceived as personally attacking will be removed. The only exceptions are valid discussions where someone gets too passionate, realizes their error and apologizes. Even those will be monitored closely. I've been given a great honor by GEM-sensei in having this forum and with that comes a certain responsibility. I won't take that responsibility lightly. I've kept Canna-sensei's reply, edited away the references and responses to the original posts, but left the essence because there are some important sentiments contained herein.)
The first thing to keep in mind is that the seniors on these pages do not consider themselves “ Masters” of anything. We are just fallible human beings, perhaps even more so than the less “rank” laden ones.
...consider the law of the “ I Nucleus
Are you familiar with it?
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote
The room, the territory, is mine, and I am at its nucleus. Everything in the universe begins with me _ for me. Look out at the stars. View them from three hundred and sixty degrees. Are you not in the center of the universe? Look at the occupants in the room. As you turn, are they not, from your perspective, also turning, with you as the axis? Admit it, are you not at the nucleus of your own Universe?
Kind of makes you think, doesn’t it?
