I'm not sure that this post has anything to do with happiness or saving the human race, but since the comment I submitted has not been published on , I thought I would reproduce it here -- once again, following the comment I responded to and with a few edits. (I also made a few edits in the comment box and don't recall what they were.) I don't know whether I'm speaking with clarity or from delusion, but as I get ready to post this, I'm remembering that Avalokitesvara's compassion manifests in multiple ways (though I'm not certain how skillful I'm being) and that if my words are deluded "The flower of the dharma turns the flower of the dharma."
* I've also considered that that very behavior might be an attempt to point to, if not admonish you, for your own. I don't know.
