also applies as a direct answer, Budd.
Hah, I am still responding to your other post and I like Plato's Dialogues as a means of exploring a topic. Nor am I arguing against the importance of some of the things mentioned in your link. But I am questioning a bit the assertion you're making regarding how the connecting to others step is somehow both inferior to and not stressing the importance of managing the forceload within yourself.
Anyways, more to come in my other response. I do like where the discussion is going - especially, as you pointed out, some of the differences that people of greater stature in the community seem to be focusing on.
