Dear At,

New formulation for what I had in mind:

What you wrote on inertia stemming from rote knowledge and rote belief
stirred like a spoon in the usually inert soup of my experiences. The
bubbles coming up from this stirring make me question seriously the
inscription of the spoon: "beware rote ###".

Thank you for your additional stirring. I see the inscription much clearer
now. The temptation for RMB is high, especially in mentally unsecure
environment. In this environment RMB is easily justified, as I have tried.
Now I see that the message of Easter is that nothing can be lost by AMB -
independent of how destructive the environment may be. RMB is a disease,
but I am not yet ready to be cured, just give me a little more reversible
time... yet I am still loved and feel blessed, thanks for the miracle.

Not entering the black hole: is this the core of resistance to change?
Where is the loving (as opposed to demanding) kick in the ass I cannot

Liebe Gruesse,
