TRANSMIGRATION being generated by IGNORANCE!
You know, this takes the entire mystic persona away from the concept TRANSMIGRATION when it is posed as a RESULTANT PHENOMENA of IGNORANCE.
Wow, think of the possibilities!
I have been working the Kaballah now for more than 25 years, almost 30 years, and WOW, DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS DOES TO THE JEWISH CONCEPT OF "REPAIRING THE FACE OF GOD", WHEN THE CONCEPT OF TRANSMIGRATION IS APPLIED IN A SUBORDINATE CONTEXT TO IGNORANCE?
YOU ARE SPLENDID! YOU WORK WELL WITH ME AND WHERE I AM AT! THANK YOU!
I AM RIGHT WITH THIS SUTTA AT THIS SECOND AND HAVE BEEN AT THIS SUTTA FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS. Don't worry, I'm working on it and I'm workin on a lot of other things as well.

Long have you thus experienced stress, experienced pain, experienced loss, swelling the cemeteries — enough to become disenchanted with all fabricated things, enough to become dispassionate, enough to be released.">
