as long as you know

as long as you know

And equally I am also worried about Buddhism being known as the path of stillness so to speak. Oh you know, calm, slow thinking. No, you know you can think as fast as you want. As crazy as you want, as wild as you want. I think the only thing that Buddhism is demanding us is, you can do whatever you like as long as you know that is what you are doing. But now that is easier said than it is done you know. Most of the time, whether we do it slow or fast, we don’t know what we are doing. Because the act has already become superior than the us.
