I see many names I recognize. I see that some of us keep the same tags as we move around the web. Nice.

Have been missing the conversations on Buddhism in all its aspects lately as E-sangha is down for a long time now.

I have been on ordinary forums here & there recently and have been sadly disappointed by the regular state of many minds out there. It's been fun and interesting to be attacked ( for being atheist) but I know how to absorb that energy from doing Taiji, and then using it as I choose, to turn the conversations away from being nasty, using principles out of Buddhism, without saying so. 'rrrr something like that
No proselytizing from me ! Hallelujah brothas ayunduh sistuhs!

Having had practice on a Buddhist forum made it much easier to do well at these other, much more confrontational places where sometimes people don't even pretend to want to get along with each other.

So, I am very glad to have found you all again .
Whew! I know you'll try to be kind!

Dana :hi:

Hi Dana! I'm very glad you found us. What you said is true, there's not a lot of confrontation here and personally I find it to be a very comfortable environment. Feel free to discuss whatever you like! And for sure, being an atheist is just fine.

Please, feel free to poke around the forums, we've had some very good input from members. Best wishes :namaste:

With metta,
Laura
