      Bob,

      You 'read' of the posting
      of my link to the video is
      stunning to me. You read
      it as pridefully strutting
      my own personal spiritual
      achievements "instead" of
      encouraging seekers to press
      on when they come to the point
      where the ego's guardians of
      fear and doubt so often
      turn them back.

      To me, the purpose of relating
      my story is that is presents
      a "live" person speaking to
      the wiles of the ego and
      the incredible potential we
      have to experience profound
      peace of mind - and end the
      suffering.

      With Love.

      Jeff
