Hi Mike

I found this topic hard to address.
Progress is a theme that is relative to our position in time, a cycle or on a circle.
Unless the degrees & latitudes are defined, not to mention agreed upon values or shared demarcations,
wherever we are is going to look the same to us.
The same applies to recovery in my experience.

The other thing that struck me was the perception of karma as some kind of account we are making
deposits & withdrawals from.

When it comes to comparison for myself, I try to remember my breath because it really is the only constant in my life.

When I breathe in, I am greater than I was a moment ago.
This too shall pass.
When I breathe out, I am lesser than I was a moment ago.
This too shall pass.
But then again, I am an unabashed flake.
(maple corn flakes come to mind for some reason).

I think alot has changed in your life recently.
Some for the greater than?
Some for the lesser than?

C

Hey, really was hit with you're "Karma" comment. I think maybe that's the hope of spirituality in me that has been so dormant Craig. Maybe a rebuttal? If there really is spiritually, it would have shown up by now, wouldn't it? Can't really think how bad I would have to confess if I was Catholic. Of course, here and there, but really not too much. So wouldn't, shouldn't that translate.

Sorry Craig, feel like I maybe back doored ya.

Wasn't really my intention when I wrote it, but hey, you made me think \:\)

Mike

Promise I'll "think" on the rest in PM's, K bro

Am I being voted/evicted out of the house?
\:D (is it just me or are the emoticons here almost as creepy as MSN's & the ones in chat?)

Mike, one of the things I really like about your threads & responses is that you read like you are right here talking with,
to & sometimes at me. I feel you bro.
