Hello Again :D

Postby clw_uk » Sun Jun 30, 2013 6:14 am

Hello friends


After a long absence I'm back :woohoo: :) hope you are all well


:anjali:

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the wingèd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

loud gush the streamlets,

Welcome back Craig.

:hello:

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

I am very fit and healthy, thank you.
I hope you are too! It has indeed been a very long time.
