I correct – and thus improve – what can be corrected ... according to a preference for creature comforts and ease of life-style. For example: if I can sit upon a cushion instead of the brick pavers of the patio I will ... that is a preference. But if a cushion is not available it does not matter ...

Is it that my little brain has little understanding of AF, or is AF transmitting two different and somewhat conflicting views?Is there Emotions, or not? There is no Me, but there is a Me flesh and blood body... I think most people in and out of AF find confusion there. But, maybe they would not admit it.
