I know you didn't mean anything bad by it and I am very glad to see your awareness, thank you for the compliment as well.
The moment I became self aware I kind of owned every bit of my life. Thinking back I understand it now. As the saying goes, "Once bitten, twice
shy", that is the ego.
The Buddhists say, "Life is suffering", but in that, they mean that to live, the human condition, is to desire, which is to lack something, which is
to be suffering. To be completely aware of ones' self, you do not feel such things unless you so wish to. If someone were to anger you, the thought
is right there in front of you and a simple wish for it to be gone, makes it so.
I could never close my eyes again.
