If it ain’t broke then don’t fix it

I hope Alain makes his way back here some day. While undoubtedly afflicted by some deep nihilistic tendency which leads to lugubriousness and inverted views as expressed through his philosophies, he is not a hopeless case. There is no Zen master, as far as I am aware, who has expressly vetoed being a goody-goody, and perhaps after many kalpas of compassionate worldly attachments he is ready to throw off the mantle of existence and discover the deathless, and thereby the highest-most compassion, which is not to palliate the suffering of sentients, but to obliterate the root of suffering by wielding the diamond-mace of Manjusri which can crush even the hardest head like a molded grape and demolish the cause, not just diminish the effect, of suffering.
