Blithe — it is the resilience throughout time I was referring to. That, and the fact that particular tradition emerged from centuries of purposeful ongoing travels and visits to all the other homes of other traditions on all of Turtle Island, precisely to share and compare and learn from each other, not to claim superiority of knowledge, but dedication to seeking wisdom. I am not telling you to believe or not, just offering my own perspective, and as I said, take it or leave it. Always the call of each individual. Peace.
