You mean you will not judge everything I say? That would be refreshing and productive.

In actuality, this post is directed at something much larger than us. To "get rid of me" is to submit the ego to this larger something.

I still feel the same about you as ever. In short I do value you as a friend, but I seem to have a talent for irritating you and you have a talent for hurting my feelings. So be it.
The least you could would be to peruse my latest blogs cum grano salis.

I guess this means you didn't notice the comments I left a little while ago on your blog.

I had tried in the past to help you see the cause of your suffering, but you were not open to my help.

Now I realize I can't help anyone else because to do so would be motivated by my ego, and that I can only improve myself so that the world would also be improved.

Thought. Let it be.

Sophia, I finally saw your comments on "Live and Let Live" and I agree with them. I finally had to deal with the pastby treating it as if it were pages in a history book. The past has no more substance than a ghost, unless we lend substance to it. We cannot live in the future or the past, but only in the present.

What a crock. You referred to yourself four times in one sentence. Why do you even have a blog then? I laugh in your direction because your position is weak. I follow that with scoffing because you have effectively murdered Sophia who is a unique expression of the universe. Pity you have travelled so far only to kill yourself. You haven't even come to the cusp of the void yet and already you talk as though you know what it means to lose the ego. I suppose your little show here appeases your readers who are just as dumb and misguided as you are. Carry on then.

Dumb and misguided compared to who?
