This month’s newsletter is titled Host and Guest. This is because I’ve been a guest on a couple of different shows/blogs this past month, and this has been really enjoyable. Also a new series where I host interesting people is starting this Saturday.
The interesting thing about the attitudes of inferiority and superiority is that they are two sides of the very same coin. We call this coin “lack of self-confidence”. Mentioning anything that has the word ‘self’ in it as a positive can be seen as a big no-no in Buddhist circles, but for the sake of our personal and collective sanity, I think a clarification of this matter would be highly useful.
