Thanks for the reply - at least we are off that Catholic/Protestant thing! :-)
Please allow me to elaborate a bit more then -- even defining what I mean by "egocentric."
Well put. The division you are making between egocentrism and the true practice of selfless Love and Compassion is clearer to me now. I'm still chewing over your position that the development of "ki power", whatever that may be, must, by necessity, be an egocentric act. I'll have to go back and ponder your posts for a while.
Thanks for the fascinating conversation!
