The advanced Buddhism class last night was… interesting, but I’ve decided not to go back for now. Some of the concepts were a bit heavy going for me, and the discussion of the sutta got completely sidetracked (so it seemed) by a couple of old people who seemed intent on ‘discussing the arrow which had pierced them instead of removing it’ (defining the problem instead of taking care of it). I cannot say I found it entirely useful.
It did however give me an idea or two, like having one day off a week from the computer to just ‘think’. I also realised that I need to meditate more (or at all, in fact), and that I should read and re-read some of the books I’ve got before going back. So not a completely wasted experience.
