Don't take me (too) seriously -  or maybe you will - is it really up to you anyway?

 

I guess we'll both find out.

I've lurked on here a while enjoying some posters comments regarding a particular matter,  and now, i'm posting it seems. Most likely to entertain myself and to share and express something incredibly obvious which some might what to hear, and others not. Once I feel it leads to where it has lead, I'll say my farewell.

Hello Foundit and welcome.

 

Your membership is approved and we're happy you found your way to us. We look forward to accompanying you on some of the way that you still have to go.

 

Please take the time to read the two posts pinned at the top of this Welcome page and take a look at the forum terms and rules. This covers all you need to know when getting started.

 

For the first week you will be restricted to ten posts per day but after that you can post as much as you like. Also, until you’ve posted fifteen times in the forums, you’ll be a “Junior Bum” with somewhat restricted access and will be allowed only two private messages per day.

 

Good luck in your pursuits and best wishes to you,

 

Marblehead and the TDB team

 

 

Hi Foundit,

 

What is it you have found?  And don't worry, I don't even take myself seriously.  This place is like a Roach Motel, very difficult to check out of.

 

You are welcome to jump right in ongoing discussions, revive an older thread, start a new thread of your own, or start a discussion in the "Newcomer Corner" sub-forms to expand on your introduction or ask general questions to help you get started.

 

May you enjoy your time here.

 

Marblehead

Thats both an easy and hard question to answer. I'll create a thread and you can come play if you feel the pull.

 

Thanks for welcome - this should be slightly interesting.

Welcome to the bums :)

Recognize mind has never once had a thought that wasn't your own choice already.
Mindfully choose compassionate thoughts that are a pleasure to experience and the urge to silence thought passes.
With no urges, the need to cling to some thought passes with it.
Unlimited love,
-Bud

Kar3n: Thank you

 

Rishi Das: I may have said all I was going to say. We need others to interact with otherwise I'm left with myself with nothing to say. I am where I am and it's silly describing things for my own sake.  Good thing I enjoy my own company as I truly do love my ego - highly entertaining  ;)

Stick around and get comfy. Interaction will happen naturally.

 

Community can be important and there is a reason your here.

I'm away now.

 

Thanks for allowing me to indulge and share in my topic of interest. 

 

As one poster mentioned, this forum maybe isn't one for proper inquiry into the matter - which means I would only spoil things for people and that is not my intention. 

 

You don't need anyone to figure it out other than yourself and the reality that's infront and within. 

 

All the best and enjoy the rides.

I would disagree, as this forum can be an excellent place to discuss a matter. But, it can be challenging for those who are attached to their views, as members rarely find simple agreement on topics.

Best, Jeff

Rebirth cycles are much shorter on internet forums, so chances are Foundit returns in one form or another.

Although there is something to muse about in this fast membership experience: how Ultimate Understanding can rebirth? Mmmm...
