A half-baked idea this agitated morning,,,
Sometimes I'm really good and follow the Path quite closely,
but sometimes being good gets boring and I go for some indulgence of some kind or other,
and then it occurred to me...
When I over indulge in something (i.e., drink or eat too much)
I pay for it later with an equal and opposite reaction (i.e., hangover or upset stomach and/or weight gain).
Thus the (meta)physics of indulgence. Take that, Newton!
What's the lesson or point here?
Hell, I dunno.
Maybe it's the reaction that we need to recognize as a teacher about indulgences.
