Hello, so we just post our comments to this forum for the course in 2016, right?

I have struggled with a conflict of personality vs. character throughout my practice as it has totally baffled me along the way what to “substitute” now for all the negative thought loops, fears and bullshit that is going on on the personality side after I become aware of them. So equanimity and wisdom are the paramis I try to continuously develop in order to see this struggle more as a process of opening up and being with what presents itself rather than one simple “switch”. In a way the conflict IS the practice for me now, to find a place where there is nothing to substitute but more to recognize what is there as the basis and has been there the whole time, just independent from the limits of personality.
