"The fundamental, most basic shenpa is to ego itself: attachment to our identity, the image of who we think we are. When we experience our identity as being threatened, our self-absorption gets very strong, and shenpa automatically arises. Then there is the spin-off-such as attachment to our possessions or to our views and opinions. For example, someone criticizes you. They criticize your politics, they criticize your appearance, they criticize your dearest friend. And shenpa is right there."
Knitting has taught me many things. Patience, generosity, friendship, consistency, courage, persistence and kindness.
It seems to me that there are a lot of people out there who could benefit from learning how to knit.
