In Eight Steps to Happiness Geshe-la says "'Self' and 'other' are relative terms, rather like 'this mountain' and 'that mountain ... 'This' and 'that' therefore depend upon our point of reference. This is also true of self and other. By climbing down the mountain of self, it is possible to ascend the mountain of other, and thereby cherish others as much as we presently cherish ourself."

In Remission!

Was hoping the couple of tumors would at least be stable, but this is even better: According to the CT scan I had on Tues, they're completely gone!

Having been on chemo for a year and a few months, I'm exhausted. Looking forward to getting some energy back.

Thank you, Buddha.
Thank you, Sangha.
Thank you to everyone who's been making prayers and offering good thoughts.
