I Really Must Be Going...

The signal-to-noise ratio on this board is too unfavorable for anything worthwhile to take place, IMHO. Bye-bye :hi:

The door is always open to you here Chris. :group:
    How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!

Hope our paths continue to cross elsewhere.
Thanks to the help of generous sponsors (most of them from DharmaWheel), I'm doing a Vajra Armor (Dorje Kotrab) self-retreat this summer. May the merit be yours!

I often feel this way about online participation, and I do believe that spending too much time on a Buddhist discussion forum can be counter-productive, but then I take a little break of some weeks or months and then, at least for a while, I do seem to find some value in limited participation again.

Go well, Chris.

When we feel we have nothing left to give
And we are sure that the "song has ended"--
When our day seems over and the shadows fall
And the darkness of night has descended,

Where can we go to find the strength
To valiantly keep on trying,
Where can we find the hand that will dry
The tears that the heart is crying--

There's but one place to go and that is to God
And, dropping all pretense and pride,
We can pour out our problem without restraint
And gain strength with Him at our side--

And together we stand at life's crossroads
And view what we think is the end,
But God has a much bigger vision
And he tells us it's only a bend--

For the road goes on and is smoother,
And the "pause in the song" is a "rest,"
And the part that's unsung and unfinished
Is the sweetest and richest and best--

So rest and relax and grow stronger,
Let go and let God share your load,
Your work is not finished or ended,
You've just come to "a bend in the road."
People will know nothing and everything
Remember nothing and everything
Think nothing and everything
Do nothing and everything

This thread really shows how good this forum is. I have been participating on forums since 2000. In all of them if you made such a farewell thread criticizing the forum you would be attacked by the site staff, quisling users and perhaps even banned. But here, Silent Bob is just wished well.

This makes me realize I really need to find a sangha and avoid better many of the unvirtous people out there. Ultimately if a forum can help you it can help you, if can't it can't, but elsewhere people get too attached.
