      Hi Jody -

      Thanks.

      The dissolving of the "idea
      of me" is one of those subtle
      and difficult to describe
      aspects of Awakening that
      has the rational mind hear
      a metal-pipe clang.

      That shift out of the personal
      sense of "ego" to just "being"
      brings the sweet relief from
      taking anything personally, and
      it not only allows for continuity
      of the fiery asshole persona...
      it transforms one predisposed
      to being a fiery asshole
      into a fearless fiery asshole;
      taming the lions of fear and
      doubt and replacing those with
      a hot and sweet pepper undercurrent.

      Love, as always,

      Jeff
