OMG, I cannot fast, I cannot be quite and I'm not patient at all. But the three skills are nice ones.
why do you have to fast? i get the other 2
I think it has to do with controlling the senses and elminating desire (you must control the senses before you can control the mind). For the past two Mondays I have eaten watermelon-only - and watched the mind think about food, food food.
i can eat watermelon constantly, although it's not in season yet. i admire you alot.
