    Fael Illyar: I realized, while walking home, that I had forgotten to accept myself completely, myself and my thoughts. Looks like that's rather easy thing to forget :)
    Pema Pera: I guess there are very many levels of "accepting" . . . .
    Fael Illyar: hmmh... I suppose it could be I just found a new level of accepting I hadn't been doing.

    Fael Illyar: How good you feel is sort of like the speed of light. You can get closer but never quite reach the maximum
    quen Oh: ah :-) maybe the problem is that we have this imaginary ultimate.. .which seems to be infinitely better than the current
    Fael Illyar: That we take for a goal, yes, exactly.
    quen Oh: so in comparison the now is always losing...
    Fael Illyar: yes, it's something that you will never reach and even if you set that as a goal, you'll know that, deep down.
    quen Oh: if we would not have a goal, but just a now..
    Fael Illyar: Yes, exactly :) It's fine as it is now :)
    quen Oh: and not some idealized past too of course… difficult to stop the time-aspect and the comparing in your thinking
    Fael Illyar: what it is that sort of is "progress" here is learning to accept the now better.
