I never realized how much of a tilter I was until I listened to this series.

Thanks for the chance to be aware of myself, and giving me some suggestions on how to improve my tilt.

Honestly, re-listening to this video is a great way to get me to come down off of my tilt.

Nice and inspiring series, but I must say it: the musical intermezzos are the most awfully chosen musical themes I've ever thought someone must think of. At a point, I suspected this is on purpose: to tilt listeners so as to make them more aware of the theme's importance.

Could someone possibly send me a jpg of the animated Tommy Angelo BLUE cap? I find the image oddly soothing and I think that it would be great to have as an avatar to remind oneself to stay in the moment, etc.

Looks good to me! I poked around for a while and learned a few things, confirmed a few things, and got good reminders of a few things.

The best advice I've ever received or given is that the main thing is to set aside the time and stick with the commitment to the TIME. Filling in the blanks as to what you do with the time is of secondary importance. If you put in the time every single day and never miss a day, that's the main thing.

I loved this series, because I have been doing yoga and meditation for years and I love how it relates to the poker game as much as the mathematical or western psychological ideas.

With regard to playing the blame game...at what point are you responsible to speak the truth (right speech)?
...



I just finished the series (audio on the iPod is a great thing) and I had the exact same thought when accepting blame was discussed.

My example / question is: Presumably we all agree that Martin L. King's struggle for black american civil rights was a good and just cause. A good philosophy should not lead us to reject fighting for justice. Perhaps there is a way for Buddhism to lead us to the same action but for reasons other than justice.

Does the Dalai Lama believe the goal of Tibetan independence is a bad goal?

I see value in avoiding the blame game but I'm not clear how this would lead to the right action of struggling against Jim Crow or South African apartheid.

As I was finishing episode 8, I was thinking the exact opposite! The musical choices were fantastic counterpoint to the topics discussed and the occasional unrecognized intros (e.g. comfortably numb) that morph into the clearly identifiable melody at just the right time was masterful. Of course the music is skewed towards someone with a background in classic rock (at least on the pop side of the music)

The music may not work for everyone but for me everything about this series was a home run! The 8 fold path has a permanent home on my iPod because I plan to listen to it many times in the coming years.
