I spend most of my waking hours working. After work, I prioritise physical training and practice. Sometimes I have an idea for a blog post here and sketch out a rough draft, then don’t find the time to write it up into cogent, well-presented form. I have 21 such drafts now. I like to think carefully about the presentation of ideas, make sure that I’ve researched them well and that they’re clearly articulated.
A meticulous approach seems important because my view of Buddhism, and of Tantric practice, is somewhat non-conformist. Expressing ideas that run contrary to contemporary mainstream assumptions – even when they draw on historical precedent – requires care and consideration.
