I had to laugh about your concerns with the FIVE PRECEPTS and how many feel there are UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES that you can't control... there's a comedy on NBC called "THE GOOD PLACE" that has this as basically the CENTRAL THEME!!!! (Ted Danson is there when the main character wakes up and says she's in the "GOOD PLACE" *WINK* And that they have a computer that tallies up all the GOOD and the BAD things you do and whatever your SCORE is when you die determines where you end up... (I won't give anything away... but lets just say the SYSTEM is a "LITTLE DIFFERENT" than they've all been TOLD!) The main characters are AWESOME! *GRIN*
I stumbled upon your podcast via spotify, looking for something new. The Noah episode I listened to was with Noah Reshetta. Liked the tone and good dialogue. Chose another episode, this one on the five precepts; brilliant! Such agood, grounded perspective. Loved the positive practice and approach to the negative commands. Really brought it to life. Thankyou.
