Thank you. It means a lot to know what I am doing is helping in some way. I know what I do affects you and that affects your show and viewers to in some way.

We do impact the world through ideas that spread around through others. Like the saying goes, "Courage is contagious, so be courageous." As we speak truth, and show courage, others see that and pass it on like a contagion. We don't have to take on the responsibility for the whole thing just the local stuff, and that affects others who take care of their local stuff and eventually the whole world changes because of local changes.

Your dissection of 'saving'; the pejorative nature of projected helplessness, was very helpful.

A life mediation that can go well with this discovery;

Notice any threads of harm that can be influenced by doing less.

Structurally, this is a class limited activity. Though, in this case, I don't think it limits it's potential usefulness.

Also, each time we do happen to stumble upon the delusion of self, the experience of becoming responsible for everything is more than compensated by the release from the constant demands of the self.
