  1. And now we are locked again, pending further review.
  2. Blue aura people

    Hi dawn90, are you referring to people who seem to naturally radiate a somewhat contagious joy of being?
  3. This worthy topic is being temporarily locked, pending moderator review.
  4. Organizing PPJ into Sections

    I added your request (and yours too cleansox) to the thread in the mod area with earl grey’s request.
  5. An opinion or observation of madness

    The other night while watching YouTube the SO clicked on a Tucker Carlson video. The bit watched before he grew disgusted and turned it off highlighted a likelihood Trump will not get re-elected, and started to discus how what should have easily been strengths going into election time had become weaknesses...
  6. Organizing PPJ into Sections

    Hi Earl Grey, I had to present the titles for the requested sub forums before they could be created, and presently the members of the mod team do not have permissions (to create sub forums) or I would simply work with you on this. At the moment admin or tech would have to expedite the request, so I’ll create a thread in the mod area, and see if we can get you the necessary assistance.
  7. I still ice my coffee before drinking it on the porch - where it quickly becomes luke warm. Just the way I like it.
  8. On Spontineity

    Oh my... Personally I prefer the Feng/English translation, but the sharing wasn’t about the translation. It was about the article which I do find rather interesting in a way which has nothing to do with the first line, but the duration of storms - in this instance correlated with forced activity. Which translation is this?

    Found this a bit interesting: https://mydescentintomadness.wordpress.com/2011/01/03/tao-te-ching-verse-23/
  10. Remaining Centered - Simply Be

    “Enlightenment is the exhaustion of error.” If I am remembering the quote correctly, exhaustion may be much more literal than one may believe upon first hearing it.
  11. Ok, So she either agreed with you, and betrayed herself in the process, continued to defend what she had shared at the request of an individual with actual interest in what was shared, or threw up her hands and walked away? She doesn’t give in, and then you present it as about her need for control? Over a topic you acknowledged not wanting to contribute to, and admittedly find to be vulgar? I would call this persistence, not spontaneity. And that it appears to have become individually focused bordering on harassment with the sheer persistence of what in this moment looks like an intentional derailing of a thread...
  12. When the quote starts with “the idea is” it indicates a sharing of what is presented for the reasonings behind what the OP is questioning. You are entitled to your opinion. She has presented reasons for her own - which she is also entitled to.
  13. From the first reply the OP received: From the second reply the OP (in this case referring to original poster) received:
  14. Seemed more “they” were openly sharing what information they had regarding a direct query in the OP for just such information. Do you have information to add regarding the topic?
  15. Remaining Centered - Simply Be

    By being an undisturbed reflection, without effort, and without clinging or aversion, “others” may come to see “themselves” - sometimes they see the created self, and react or respond accordingly, and sometimes they see the uncreated, unborn, etc. etc. and blah blah blah. The mirror doesn’t change, doesn’t dwell on ideas of good or bad or wisdom or ignorance. The reflections arise, and fall away, and according to it’s nature the mirror simply “allows” the play of reflections to unfold. Hi Dwai, interesting thread, to me the idea of mirror like wisdom points nicely towards “no mind,” and provides me with invaluable reminders of when I am not quite “through the door.” As a mildly humorous aside, the back of my foot is healing nicely after rather forcefully attempting to close a door I wasn’t quite through, while juggling myriad objects. I didn’t drop a thing, and injured myself while attempting to hold to much.
