That’s actually a beautiful set of concepts. Thanks for sharing them, Mike. Just to be clear, no one ever experiences Nirvana (aka Heaven).

It is easier for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. A rich man is one who holds knowledge, belief, and understanding, a bag of concepts, including the concept of self.

ps. I’m not buddhist.
