BTW, I just got done watching my hands make another new knife.
For me, this went very well with the 1st quote below as I always
feel I'm just a spectator to these hunks of steel and various
handle and guard materials assembling and becoming "things".
And similarly, when I watch the events of my life roll by,
I am comfortable when I just watch the show and let them flow.
I do see and feel an inner smile when beauty, love and
wisdom fill the moments and for me knife making and the Satsang
we share here and on similar sites really do this very well.
And I not only am content, I am appreciative. This incarnation
is filled with, as long as "I" get out of the way, as
St Oprah would say, many "Aha moments". If Gus sees anything he
likes, let me know and we'll hook him up.
Peace and blessings,
