I did not feel you were being mean spirited. No probs there!
Thanks for taking on what i said and i have thought about your points. But if
we assume existence is prior to essence, then any explanation of what is
cannot ever, ironically, say much about existence? However, and this is my
reason for keeping the MoQ around, existence has a beautiful way of
constantly reassuring us that something excellent is going forth? Just
holding on to that and working with it can do allot.
This does not involve making decisions as such but rather developing a feel
for the work in hand; and in the process becoming one with the work.
Talking about the MoQ may have the unfortunate result of distancing oneself
from that which we are talking about, which, after all, is Quality - and
Quality is postulated as the absolute.
