Hellooooo!

Postby piper » Mon Jan 12, 2009 6:03 pm

Hi all,

Nice forum!

A lot of familiar faces, or avatars rather. Some of you might know me from other forums, but I won't reveal my true identity. :spy:

Cheers!

Welcome piper ('charming' name by the way). Who knows one's true identity anyway? Image

As long as you know who you are, I guess that's what really counts. :)

Welcome.

hi

Welcome Piper!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Greetings & welcome, Piper!

Metta,

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
