Brad, don!￣t let this get you down. They give you flak because you!￣re honest and you tell it like it is. Everyone who ever does gets crap. Howard Stern and The Ramones, for examples, went through all kinds of mudslinging and hate campaigns against them because they dared to challenge bull$#!. You!￣ve helped me immensely and you!￣ll always have my support.
Enormously educational many thanks, I do believe your visitors will most likely want further blog posts similar to this maintain the excellent effort.
When my mother was in labor for 36 hours she and my grandmother looked out the window at the same time and watched a coyote come out of a bush look at the pair of them then transformed into a bald eagle and flew away. Since then I have spoken to a shaman and he said they witnessed the trickster watching over my birth.
Hi Wee ¨C good luck with the meds and hope everything goes well. Please let us know if you need more info.
Hello, I!￣m new here (looking forward to buying your first book some time next month, and omg do you have reasonable prices on the zafus in you site shop), and to all these things (zen and its community) in general, but I think that may be the right stance for this. Too many details that are irrelevant to the correct response. If life and limb are not at risk, I say that all conflicts should eventually be resolved with kind words. However, we are humans and are not always capable. At bare minimum, it usually takes time to cool off enough to seek reconciliation. Sometimes we never get to that point. What!￣s important to remember is that you can not blame your enemies for a lack of reconciliation. There is almost always some set of truthful words that could reconcile the deepest conflicts. We must admit to ourselves that regardless of their failings we have either failed to find those words or held too much pride to use them. This is even more difficult in many cases than simply finding and using them. Everyone has their reasons for their behaviors, not all of them logical or moral. One must try to empathize with the failings of others, even when their failings are directed aggressively at our own person. We are best at doing this if we try to understand their motives, but if we can!￣t understand, we must acknowledge our own ignorance and give them the psychological benefit of the doubt. We may not always be capable of this response (I rarely am), but I believe it to be the correct one. In this case, I find it easier as an observer to keep a clear head by not reading the articles in the first place, but I will say that in the case of the admin, if I ran a site and gave people I knew the ability to post articles on it, I would let them post whatever they wanted as long as I found their postings to be honest. It!￣s important to let contributors have their freedom. I!￣m going to stay out of further specifics (as I probably should have there) as I am not qualified to speak on them and feel it muddys the basic issues involved. I only wish I was capable of what feels like such lucidity when I wasn!￣t half asleep. Looking forward to finally getting your book(s) when I!￣m less broke, D351.
I!￣m HIV positive and my husband is negative. We need a child and im scared to infect my him. I am on antiretroviral treatment. Please help.
a buttefly flew into my house today and landed on my arm then slowly flew around me, despite the cold wet weather & i didnt think they survived this long it was beautiful in colour & seemed so calm, does this mean anything??
Thanks a lot, A great sun and that great groove, everything!￣s perfect.
Happy birthday Bryan, and welcome to the seniors!￣ club. Looking forward to catching up on your return. Kate
About a year or so ago, I was heading to school and as I headed out the door, I saw a coyote looking at me(originally I thought it was a wolf but later found out it was a coyote) and then I blacked out and fell to the ground. My mother found me and took me to the hospital and they took my blood pressure, blood sugar level and other blood tests to see if anything was wrong, there wasn!￣t, I still have 0 clues as to why this happened to me. Coyotes usually never come around our house, and suddenly, I see this one look at me and I black out? I!￣m clueless, anyone have any insight as to why this happened to me?
