I'm surprised by how much it bugs me when people don't take the exact median of the remaining options.

The Cafeteria / May we keep it? & The Best Of 2014/04/01

I get that it's just for April Fool's ... but can we keep it as an option? It's good advice.

I'm an INTP too. We're fairly over-represented on the internet.

You can only talk so much and practice is slow. Personally, I have learned more than enough to hold me through basic practices, but the practice is still difficult and slow.

Ideally, I'd like to think that others are just going through a similar experience when disscussion gets slow.

Veritas seems solid though, and not prone to dissapearing during a lull.

Spirituality / Re: Aspects of Initiation

No one has ever written an article at my request before; how cool!

I look forward to growing older and experiencing more of these things. I think american society tends to push us to rush our development, and to have things mastered by the age of 25-30, and I've always felt like it should take much longer.

It's interesting that some of these traditions are just beginning at an age when many people I know are getting ready to fully commit to careers, and when others are ready to retire.

I'm not sure what else I could say. Very informative, well written. I'll have to re-read this whenever I feel the urge to rush.

Thank you Mind_Bender.

@Mind_Bender
Good post! I think there's a lot of information in there that would be helpful to new practitioners, and just everyone in general. You should consider expanding it and turning it into an article.

Nowhere in history has there ever been a tradition that sets an age for "enlightenment".

Well that's just not true. Taaraka clearly follows a tradition that does. I'm sure there have been many other traditions that have as well. History's big, so don't go making statements that you can't back up.

I doubt that there is a precise age before which enlightenment cannot be obtained, however I am inclined to believe that it requires a certain amount of experience and maturity. Much like adulthood, some people might grow into it early, some later, and some might never mature enough to be truly called adults.

He does mention it briefly, Akenu.

I would include basic exercise as well, except that I'm only talking about a basic level of health here. Weights and other things that put stresses on the body help us increase out health and wellness, but basic stretching is used to get us up to at least a basic level of health.

Ah kobok, how clearly you can explain things.

I took a basic logic course in university about 3 years ago, and the teacher kept going on and on about trinary boolean states. I tried to explain to him why I thought that made no sense, but blah. I wish I could have quoted your post to him then :P
