Hi Friends. I'm thinking of coming back to DW. In Thailand now. Doing my best.
If I come back, will I be welcome?

Welcome Alan!
“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 did not know you were ever unwelcome!

Welcome back on board!


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Are you welcome here? I don't remember any Alan effigies being burned here in the halls of Dhammawheel, so the answer in my mind is 'probably'. ;) To be honest, I never knew why you left.

Anyway, I hope you have returned.

Well he did post some obscenely beautiful sunsets which are not good for the restraint of the senses. The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Dhamma is looking into these transgressions. Effigies and firewood are being prepared just in case! :D

Good to "see" you again, Heretic!

There is a simple reason for why I felt unwelcome--the fact that I was often banned for saying what I thought!
But I'm more mellow now--the past several months have been very good to me. Maybe I'll even know when to let go, and when to move on.
