Here are some essays written in answer to questions or common concerns. I hope they are of some benefit to you. The essays each have little titles and blurbs that explain what they are about and then can be read on their own. Or, you can read them in clusters. The essays on meditation all go together and should be read consecutively, for example. Finally, there is the first essay entitled, "Why I Write and How I Think You Should Read Me," which is a long, still evolving, introduction to the context from which these essays are emerging. Please contact me with questions, comments, criticisms, what have you.
