I have no idea what you mean Hanzze. And when I say that or Tiltbillings says that, or other people previously have said that it is not to be unkind. The fact is that no matter how sincere your input is your English is simply not good enough either to understand the subtleties of what is being said to you , or for you to be able properly to express your view. Which leaves us having to guess what you are trying to convey.
This would be tricky enough if we were talking about concrete, simple matters.
But when the issue is complex and subtle like Buddhadhamma it makes true communication impossible.
Some time ago another member suggested that you spend some of the time that at the moment you spend posting incomprehensible posts and instead use that time to improve your English.
I think you should consider her wise advice.

Hanzze...I will not be responding to any more of your posts until and unless you make some effort to make them understandible.
It truly is pointless.

And its fair point..if that is actually what it means.
On the other hand if I spoke pidgin Khymer I wouldnt go on Cambodian websites and waste their time having to have meta discussions about my possible meaning.
Neither would I expect them to learn English.
Instead I would polish up my Khymer.

I really hope that the English does get polished up. I find Hanzee to be a very pleasant person who is extremely skillful in his responses. I actually find some inspiration in him that way.

Yup. I am quite sure that if someone had walked into a group of Waffen SS besieging the Warsaw ghetto eating a lump of cheese they would have downed arms and picked flowers immediately...good plan. :twothumbsup:


Sheesh.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

I wasnt born at the time of the Warsaw Ghetto. Had I been I would have put my puny shoulder to the wheel as did my father and uncles and aunts and fought the Nazis.
If they had not its likely that I would not be here to read your views.
Its likely that Tim Berners-Lee would not have been able to invent the www. either. So neither would anyone else.
