Thanks to everybody

I just wanted to post a nice THANK YOU to everybody on this group,
for being respectful, open-minded, courteous and so forth.
In my years of practice and study I have never encountered so many different paths of dharma practice,
although of course I have read things from various schools,
the vastness of the Dharma really comes alive here
and it is refreshing, educational and fun to read about the various traditions
and about the issues that concern people.
It is really remarkable that the technology exists
that can bring so many people together so easily.
In many ways, this is a very good time to be alive
and, I think, very good for the Dharma.
Thanks again.
:thanks:

Ah...what used to be called reverse psychology..." just wanted to post a nice THANK YOU to everybody on this group,
for being respectful, open-minded, courteous and so forth.


It won't work I tell ya....I will continue to remain disrespectful, closeminded, and back and forth on many things for no good purpose.... :smile:

nice try though.....

It was an absolutely zen moment
a whack with a stick
and impermanent!
