I really need to apologise to you for the post I made regarding your "My rant on Hui Neng's poem" original posting. It was a stupid thing for me to do.
I was wrong in cutting loose like that and I should have known better. In fact I did know better, but I let my self-control get away from me for a bit there.
We all have our good days and bad days and I was having a very bad day when I wrote that post.
That's not an excuse, it's just what happened then.
I'm glad you posted back and made me realise what an idiot I was to do that
I rather made a fool of myself that time, didn't I?
Let's hope I can learn something from my mistakes,
Shame on you Shakyamuni for setting the precedent of leaving home.
Did you think it was not there--
in your wife's lovely face
in your baby's laughter?
Did you think you had to go elsewhere (simply) to find it?
