I meant to post Part 2 tonight, but it's getting kind of late. I've been sick so far as well, so haven't really had the energy to look at a computer screen for a long period of time. In addition to that, I have been getting fresh batches of stories from the source himself. I find that I have a few minor mistakes in Part 1, which I will update in the next post. Also, I myself have found some details that I did not know about as well. So stay tuned!

And in fact, as he demonstrated a few times by demolishing me, the first move can hinge between victory and loss. This is very much like our spiritual experience. Where we stand matters so much.

  1. What's up Joseph! I've learned quite a few spiritual lessons from chess. My favorite one is that it's not how powerful any one piece is, but how well they work together.

    Do you mind if I set up a link from my site to your's?
