    Do you have them in your tradition?

    I'm asking the question now as I set forth my own aspirations for the new year. What I'm trained to do, is to set the aspiration, recall it each morning and then check each night to see how I've done.

    How do you restore the spiritual relationship after you've created non-virtue?

    Buddhists have confession and purification practices. What do you do?

    I never leave my spiritual relationship. If I am erring, it usually takes me a little while to see it, and it's a constant spiritual relationship which enables me to see it. I don't separate error and success spiritually. They are part of the same continuum, which is ever in flux.
