    I: I was wondering, how is your eye, and how are you getting on with dogs and people?

    You: You are wondering what we are doing.

    I: I think we are starting at the very beginning and practising the elements of understanding with one another.

    You: You are failing at the understanding thing.

    I: don't believe rigid structures promote nuanced understanding.

    I wish I didn't have to have so much trouble answering this.

    Smile Transforming ourselves through practice

    I: I started this thread to practise showing we understand. This is the very first step. And if we practise, we will find it will transform us. If we practise, there will come a time when we 'get it". However if you don't wish to be transformed, there is no need to practise.

    You started this thread to practice how to show that we understand. It is the first step. Practicing this will lead to change. If we practice enough, we will "get it" one day. There is no need to take part, if I don't want to change.

    I want to enjoy existence!

    I : And I want to enjoy existence with you. And it is unlikely you will enjoy existence alone, so we are leaning to enjoy existence together by understaning one another.
    Of course you may feel hampered by other people, so you may prefer to enjoy existence alone.

    You may not be enjoying your existence at the moment, so you are in a kind of prison without enjoyment. And when we are in prison, the only important thing is to get out. I wonder how you could break out.

    You want to enjoy existence with me. It is unlikely to enjoy existence alone, so we are learning to enjoy existence together by understanding one another. you say I may feel hampered by other people, so I might prefer to enjoy existence alone. Also, you wonder if I am caged and want to escape badly.

    I do wonder how to escape all the time.

    Smile Pronoid

    I: I escape every day. I escape right out my front door. I escape to Canberra which is like a huge outdoor lounge room full of interesting things to do and extraordinary people to meet.

    On the other hand I carry around in my head a little prison where I am told what to do and where to do it. Mostly I just ignore it and escape, escape, escape. I escape like a bird from its cage and fly across the lake to fruit salad and fresh vegetable juice, to the University and the latest discoveries, and to artistic events held all over town.

    Sometimes I feel guilty escaping all the time, but nothing bad seems to happen to me so I keep on escaping.

    In fact I think I am becoming pronoid, the opposite of paranoid. Yes, I think I am becoming pronoid which is an unreasonable belief that the world wishes me well.
