Well, so far as I can tell, I’m not an arahat. And if I am, it’s an exceptionally subtle condition of being, which it may well be.
Not that I’m complaining mind you, as all aspects of my practice have made quantum leaps in clarity and precision.
One secret that I’ve learned to build my life around is this: quantifiable goals + measurable progress + time = guaranteed success. All you have to do is not give up, or die, and success is inevitable.
One might think of this excercise as something in line with ‘shooting the curve’. Where one isn’t really aiming for goals, but to change the rate of change in the system. By that standard, I’m now much farther ahead on the timeline than I was a month ago. If I were to plug another month like this into the system, who knows what might be accomplished, and I may well do just that.
For now though, the full spectrum catastophe is ramping up everywhere you look, and it’s time to get back down to color commentary on the kali yuga.
Which means we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming, for awhile at least.
Expect a more detailed list of goals, progress reports and itinerary of upcoming items is short order…
