Re: Student ability

Hi Michael,

Yes, I would definitely agree with your take on what I was trying to convey. I would also agree that any change in self-identity is going to have to include a transformation in how Time is experienced - which is why I tried to mention things like patience, humility, endurance, and faith. Training, I feel, is supposed to cultivate these things. And from what I can garner in the original post, this kind of stuff has maybe not been addressed as much as it could or should by the deshi in question. Thus, his training might be well served by a venture or by a deeper venture into such things.

Thanks for developing this point further.
