Importance of supporting one another in the sangha

Post by bcol01 »

While it is important to support one another in the sangha, we must be careful not to do so from a place of arrogance. Doing so may feel good at the moment, but catering to the ego has been proven time and again to be detrimental and very non-Buddhist indeed. I appreciate the support, insight and productive discussions from various members in this forum. It has truly been a lamp for me. But I just wanted to add that we must remember that while it may be compassionate to "call a spade a spade" and the like, the road to hell is sometimes paved with good intentions, and so we need to have the humility and self-awareness to be able to check in on our intentions, etc before speaking. #foodforthought :namaste:
