I'm posting a request of critique or criticism of myself, and would welcome comments via PM or left in this thread.
When I joined DW I was looking for a good place to hang out and read the thoughts of other Buddhists. For that I have found the right place, and really appreciate that it exists at all. On occasion I try to contribute, and so I share what I have. My interest is in knowing how often I am wrong, or unclear, and how I might be more helpful. So, if you have ever felt that I am wrong or unclear, or anything else, let me know - so I might improve.
If ever it would seem to me that you are unclear, I would happily ask you to elaborate, but would never presume that the 'fault' lies with you. Rather, my immediate assumption would be that my understanding is flawed.
Similarly, I, most certainly, would never presume to state you are 'wrong' about anything, because this is something allied to perception, understanding, knowledge or experience. Should you ever be factually incorrect, others would be happy, no doubt to discuss the matter, but in ways which I believe you mean.....nope.... can't say I would find fault, when so much more lies here in my lap......but this is how interesting discussions come about. Through an exchange of views, perceptions and ideas.....
As Ben rightly points out, part of the process is that we're all walking together, all tripping up, faltering, fumbling and finding our way. the key operative word though, is 'together'.
It's a wonderful journey, made all the better by sharing it with like-minded travellers and friends.
And remember what they say.
The dumbest question is the one you decide to not ask.
So contribute as you always have.
I see no fault, not any reason to criticise.
