  1. A practitioner's responsibility

    Having given this careful consideration, I discover that neither do I disagree, nor do I feel that (other than that) I have any significant to add to your commentary. ☮️
  2. Buddha Did Not Know

    I'm wondering if you've ever considered the possibility that realisation may be a mixed blessing? ☮️
  3. Wrong?

    You might find it useful to consider Global Warming. ☮️
  4. You're simply taking your own side, as usual. ☮️
  5. And most people find it impossible to go with the flow and end up being dragged out to sea, whereas, it's always possible to swim across the rip current (unless, of course, you're unable to swim). What's sad about this is that in this instance I could have thrown him a life jacket that might have allowed him to swim across this particular rip but instead, he chose to ignore the possibility of a creative solution that would possibly have kept both sides of this dispute entirely happy. For myself, I removed all his memes months ago by using the Ignore function. That had the benefit that those who apparently enjoy them (including @memeahong/spamahong) can continue to enjoy them and I can always unhide posts if I'm curious. Incidentally, the life jacket that he chose to reject was the suggestion that he wrapped all his memes within a single Spoiler function, which might have kept whoever succeeded in getting him to ban himself entirely happy as well. Although, I cannot understand why the complainants didn't just swim across the rip themselves by use of the Ignore function. What could be easier? ☮️
  6. Who is "We"? I ask because some people are prone to use "we" when they should more accurately use "I" or "Some people". Do you belong to some group that shares these beliefs or do you mistakenly believe that I agree with your statements? ☮️
  7. Are you open to the possibility of a solution instead of a closure? ☮️
  8. Everyone post some favorite quotes!

    The wise speak only of what they know, Gríma son of Gálmód. A witless worm have you become. Therefore be silent, and keep your forked tongue behind your teeth. I have not passed through fire and death to bandy words with a serving-man till the lightning falls. Gandalf the White ☮️
  9. A Path of the Light (Practices)

    However, sitting in a cafe (even reading a book) can provide you with exactly the same experience (if your attitude and the ambience of the place is conducive). To summarise: Show up with the right attitude in the right place with the right people and the answer to your question will become obvious to you. ☮️
