Are you aware that a Pianoforte is actually what is now known as a Piano. Piano means ‘quiet’. Forte means ‘loud’. The instrument that can be quiet or loud or indeed anything betwixt and between. It all depends on the instrument, the sheet music and the skill of the performer.
Your life is your instrument. The Eightfold Path is the sheet music. How are your skills? How is your life?
My skills are a little rusty from lack of practice. And that is a pity because my life is better when I follow the Eightfold Path.
