Are there really people without resentment, without hate, she wondered? People who never go cross-grained to the universe? Who recognise evil, and resist evil, and yet are utterly unaffected by it?

Of course there are. Countless, the living and the dead. Those who have returned in pure compassion to the wheel, those who follow the way that cannot be followed without knowing they follow it, the sharecropper's wife in Alabama and the lama in Tibet and the entomologist in Peru and the millworker in Odessa and the greengrocer in London and the goatherd in Nigeria and the old, old man sharpening a stick by a dry streambed somewhere in Australia, and all the others.

There is not one of us who has not known them.

There are enough of them, enough to keep us going.

Perhaps.

Immediately after my awakening I was without ego and faultless in my walk for a short period of time. Perhaps a couple weeks to a month?
But them I got hooked on crank....

Poor old monkey-mind of the human being its always getting is into trouble. "the best there is" is somehow "never good enough" it seems.

Lao Tai wrote: "knowing when to stop averts disaster." sounds so somplwns yet so hard somehow. One day you are longing around in nirvana but on no, wasn't good enough was it? Just Had to have your tina and your whiskey and your cool ranch Doritos too, didn't ya? Holding hands And singing songs of peace seems pretty hard to fuck up, doesn't it? And then the next thing you know everyone's waving flags and launching nukes and shit.
