In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Hi everyone,
I find that what works for me is to reflect whether or not my post is coming from one of the Brahma-Viharas, and if it's not then I either rewrite it or I find it's not worth posting, unless I feel there's an important question to ask. While I am sometimes disappointed with some of the member's disregard for others feelings, I must say that this is a great forum overall, and I appreciate everyone's efforts to make it a friendly, compassionate, environment.
May you all be well, happy, and peaceful! :anjali:
