      Faithe: I find it a bit arrogant that one can judge another as to "being stuck on a path" or to judge that another is indeed in denial, or that they are blindly stumbling through life. The drumbeat they march to could perhaps be different and totally incomprehensible to another.

      Notice how some are depicted as "enlightened" and masses scramble to follow their every word...even though their physical life could be miserable as hell.

      I would just suggest that to judge others in their lifestyle is nonsense. The girl with her legs closed when sitting may be perfectly content doing so and would never think of sitting in way that others deem "comfortable". Perhaps she is comfortable in the present sitting mode...and then, perhaps she is not, but accepts it as such and is not prone to change it. Why judge it?
