Haven't been back to the program for a bit - sry.
Do you still feel it's "sad" ?
Language is funny............ The 'concept' is old and well recognized. It especially shows up a lot in eastern philosophy.
Not allowing ourselves to form addictions is far from a 'sad' goal. And it doesn't mean we lessen our appreciation for the beauty one iota ! In fact, it may be more the case. Our appreciation deepens.
Make any sense ?
