For a while, at least.

Gonna be a rhino.

I'll be on Twitter, though:

Be well, friend.

I look forward to chatting again, if/when you're ready.

Oh... I trust you have good reasons for doing so. Perhaps I've missed something, but 'being a rhino'?

Take care.

Hi Individual,

I am sorry if I said something wrong.

I hope everything goes well for you.

With Metta,

Guy
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

Hi Individual

one of my favourite suttas is the Rhinoceros Sutta!

Keep up the meditation, friend - and come back soon!

“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I don't use twitter much, but I added you anyways. Seen Retro on there and gave an add too.

Maybe we should start a Buddhist twitter thread? Of course that'll probably just give rise to spam...

Seeya soon man. Good luck with your meditation and keep up the good work :)
