It's obvious you are suffering so just say it and stop trying to tell us we don't know what we are talking about. You want help or do you want to drag us all into the quagmire of your views?

I sincerely wish that you be free of all the sources of your suffering. I hope that you find ultimate liberation and are never seperated from the source of true unalterable joy.

Thank you for the kindness and compassion, I assure you the energy could be better spent elsewhere.

I'm sure that you believe your own story. That's nice.

Just don't try to sell it to me, thanks. You have already warned us against false teachers.

It is pretty simple, like a slot machine, you put in a humble me, and win whatever insight comes from it.

Try it.

(doesn't work without a humble me, which I doubt you are in possession of)

Please excuse me, I have to go and answer the front door. Thanks though, that was fascinating ... no, really.

And Teknix said, “Let there be dogma,” and there was dogma. And Teknix saw that the dogma was, well, it just was. And Teknix separated wisdom from ignorance. And Tecnix called the wisdom Ignorance, and the ignorance he called Wisdom (since it was his ignorance and he couldn't bear to admit that he was ignorant, so what else could he possibly call it?). And there was evening and there was morning, the first (and hopefully last) day.

In my understanding, The Buddha taught that we should deliver all sentient beings from suffering.
So why would Gregs comment and energy be better spent elsewhere?

It seems as if that were the case, you are already enlightened.

Kindest wishes, Dave

That would be the case had there been any sincerity within the words previously written. Words are inherently meaningless, as were the ones spewing from the fingers. The intention of mockery is hardly subtle, whatever energy he does have would be better spent elsewhere, as I said.

Would Buddha condone wasting energy on mockery? Would he condone a wolf to play a sheep? If he is displaying Buddha's love for all sentient beings, I fail to see it. The intention of the heart is the determining factor.

His intentions were not pure, that was obvious, and later proven with his proceeding remarks.

You level some pretty heavy accusations without backing any of them up. Worthless.

I'm sure you find yourself humorous, enjoy the pleasure you derive from others discontent, you won't find that here though, maybe try someone else. Or at least put forth a grain of effort before you fall flat on your face.
