No, it do not sound like being live.
not quite total<br />

i found practised meditation kinda got in the way. now, when i have a space of geography and time that the universe has allocated me.... peace and contentment spreads over me, like the universe holds me safe in a state of love and total acceptance for a while.
i didn't at first.... then i realised that even meditation requires effort. now, when i find myself alone, in a quite space that i have not consciously created, i just let go.... and it just happens... and i accept it.
effort vs becoming attuned to the universe.... two different aspect of buddhist teaching... different paths, same goals. the buddha taught us that we can all reach the same state.... but not only through his teaching.
like all belief systems, buddhism has been corrupted by those who seek to be in control. the budda taught us to accept nothing and question everything... including his teaching.
i was brought up a christian... then discovered i was already a buddhist at eight years old. my folks tried to ridicule me and shame me out of it from then on... i remain a buddhist.
i expect to take responsibility for my actions, my learning and my development.... not to have some other being just forgive me without effort on my part.
yes, essential to development through understanding one's-self and one's actions.
I would say I'm okay.
Not completely cause I'm also excited about someone's reaction to their presents tomorrow.
At the moment. Yes. And my kitchen is a bit of a mess but we are all sitting together on the couch in our pjs. Life IS good. ~Peace.
