I understand what you're saying, I guess just trying to articulate what I'm thinking. Talking out loud helps me process. It may not even be "vengeance" that I'm uncomfortable with, but more the association I have between that and someone sitting around enmeshed in left over hurt feelings from something long past. Plotting the destruction of "someone who swiped $100 off you 10 years ago" seems like a waste of time and very unthelemic, and it's that kind of situation that the word triggers for me. Punching someone whose hand you just discovered sneaky a $50 out your back pocket is much more comfortable. So maybe timing is my issue. Though maybe I'd be happy to clober someone 10 years down the track, so long as I don't spend the 10 years before that fantasizing about it.

Thinking now though I am reminded of a RHK style arse kicking I suffered through a few years back when I was very deluded on off track with myself. At the time I blamed Pluto as it was a major and fairly catastrophic transit I was going through, interesting I now look back on that time with happy memories (and only a few minor scars). Perspective is a funny thing

I appreciate the perspective, thanks R. Repetition is good too, from time to time I've been going back and reading through our threads from the start and usually find many connections I missed the first time. Next read through I might bump some of the older threads with ideas.
