I felt, may be, my Asura nature rising up this week.
I can not say I am attempting to suppress it.
It is rather humorous to me though. When I am able to step back and look at the big picture, I see that I am attempting to defend something that needs no protector.
I suppose it is just in my nature.
I am concerned however, that others may get misled by the often confusing antics of sages and fools. The kalama sutra is something that I think everyone should be familiar with.
I put in a package for promotion, a letter to the promotion board and two letters of recommendation. There are two allocations for promotion in my field; I share the above zone with about 50 other Marines. I had a hard time writing the letter. I find it difficult to write my own praises, but that is pretty much what has to be done. I would appreciate any prayers for my merit.
Over the next week I will likely not have internet access. So I apologize in advance if I am not able to follow up on comments or correspondence.
May you be free from suffering,
