"Jhana of fluency" -- cool phrase, cool cool phrase. Faithful monogamy, I attest from experience, is no guarantor of fluency or even of the potentiality of fluency; I'm like one of those bikers whose bike is forever in pieces in the garage as it is repeatedly built and unbuilt, and so never permits one to ride it, never to feel the wind through the hair. Now that you mention it, though, there is a kind a jhana of design, as it gets ever purer, ever closer to perfection... --And.
