Goodbye for now.

Postby Individual » Thu Jan 06, 2011 5:18 am

I've decided to take up Tibetan Buddhism.

And for whatever reason, I've decided to abstain from discussing dhamma for a while.

However, I've started a blog:
http://iamsopre.posterous.com/

If you are one of the rare people who can appreciate my eccentricity and don't immediately regard me as a "crazy person," who should be pushed into a prison, hospital, grave, cave, forest, or secluded monastery... if you value what I say and it is useful to you, feel free to read it.

Silence can be very healing. I hope you benefit from your time away from Buddhist discussions. I often like to periodically step away from them myself as well.

I am back and can share dhamma again, I think... So long as I don't get too carried away. On Dhammawheel, I have a 3-post a day rule. Same thing will apply here.

Yes, I met her. I wish she would have stayed for much longer, though.

Wow. What a wonderful girl she is.

I felt... so safe, so protected, so loved... Just being with her for a few minutes felt like an eternity in the highest heavens.

Hmm. I need to go pick up something from the store for her.

Goodbye dear friend.
Rest in peace.
May you be free from duḥkha.
May you encounter the Dharma again
May you obtain Liberation for all sentient beings
Remember us when you are Image

May Indie have had a fortunate rebecoming in a place and time where the Dharma is accessible, and in a form able to understand and practise the Way.

A lotus for Indy. He had a heart full of sincerity, may his rebirth be auspicious.

Attain the unborn through birth. no samsaric :buddha1:
What you must do is to rest in the spaciousness
Of the equality of appearance emptiness
