Robert Perry commented on Greg Mackie's blog post The Dalai Lama's Impartial Love
"I loved this post. There is something very powerful about a living example. I think something inside everyone recognizes the truth of these principles, but the principles have a hard time finding a real foothold in our conscious convictions, in part…"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post Impartial Love
"Greg, I think it's an almost unbelievably lofty challenge to spend every day with someone and still truly feel that they are no more worthy of love than anyone else.

Ken, I get the feeling that you are really taking this on the chin. I like your Ca…"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post Impartial Love
"Greg, as I suspect you know, I completely agree with where it sounds like you're coming from. One can have impartial love for everyone, yet one cannot give equal attention to everyone. If you gave one second of full attention to each person on the p…"

"If it didn't get you into any trademark trouble, I'd seriously think about it."

Robert Perry commented on Greg Mackie's blog post Mi Amigo Jorge
"What a great story! It perfectly exemplifies the principle. And the shirt is priceless. When I first glanced at it, before reading the relevant part of the story, I just assumed it said "Star Wars." Credit to Patricia for the idea and to Jorge for t…"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post The Golden Rule: Dissolving the subject-object dichotomy
"Howard, I think it would be a disappearance of the separate self if taken to its ultimate extreme, yes. I think, though, we would be doing very well to just take a step or two in that direction."

Robert Perry commented on Greg Mackie's blog post Golden Rule Activism
"Greg, I really appreciated this very thoughtful piece. As you say, there are no easy answers, but whatever real answers there are, the Golden Rule has to be at the heart of them. I love the term "Golden Rule activism." I also thought your example fr…"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post The Golden Rule Revisited
"Ken, thank you for all you shared. Also, that was a really sweet video. I like how she faced material loss as a result of her giving, and her gain was just a sense of buoyancy within her in the face of that loss.

This whole thing has been sticking…"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post Reversing our assumptions about attack
"Yeah, I've always felt the "cheeky resistance" interpretation seriously undermines Jesus' message. I really regret that Marcus Borg was persuaded by it. If only Jesus had said, "Cleverly turn the tables on your enemies," I think that interpretation…"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post Love your enemies
"I'm so glad to hear that you've been practicing this. I did too for a number of days, but I'll try to get back to it now. It is very powerful. I feel like it contains everything in a nutshell."

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post The Beatitudes
"Ken and Greg, I really appreciated both of your stories. Both were really a case of the Beatitudes meeting everyday pain and suffering--everyday life. It would be great if we could start a beatitude movement!"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post Noncomplementarity: flipping the script
"Ken, thank you very much for trying to apply the message and telling us your story. Even though the guy turned out to be harmless, it does ignite some pretty basic fears in us to see a stranger going through our personal belongings. So I think it's…"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post Noncomplementarity: flipping the script
"David, those are great stories. The first one is truly one of the all-time greats, which I remember from Ram Dass' How Can I Help? The second one I'm sure I should know, but I don't remember reading it. Also a great story, all the better because it'…"

Robert Perry commented on Greg Mackie's blog post Living Up to Our Highest Values: A “Beam and Speck” Story
"This is such a great story! I have been trying to think of something to add, but you've already said it all. It's just a perfect demonstration of the power of removing our own beam, and of how that can miraculously sort out a seemingly insoluble mes…"

Robert Perry commented on Robert Perry's blog post Mere words
"Thank you for the comments, everyone. It's great to openly affirm words and find others who do the same. As you said, Norman, it's nice to find brothers (and sisters) on the path. Samantha, I agree that it's very notable how NDErs feel transformed b…"

Robert Perry commented on Ken Froessel's blog post Q 6:41-42 The Speck and the Beam
"Sorry to be chiming in so late, Ken, but this was great. I really think your focus on actually using the wording and imagery of Jesus' sayings to induce practical change in us is the way to go.

Over the years, this saying has slowly gained more an…"
