“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

Do you equate "The Pali Canon" with "the dhamma"?

One person's debunk is another's bunk, which is, if asked, what I'd call this idea...anyone getting cold feet at the first sign of beliefs that don't coincide with what they think, or feel, should be the truth isn't ready for the path...when one IS ready, one will take the time to research, evaluate, contemplate, meditate, and a few other ates to form an informed basis of their own feelings, thoughts, and beliefs concerning the way forward...or not at all...

Life's all about winnowing the chaff from the grain...an earnest practitioner, or potential practitioner, will make the effort to discern which is which...

This is enough to make me do a bunk.

this has turned into a poo storm and i feel like i've offended some people with a failed attempt at playfulness and facetiousness that didn't come across well in writing, so i'm just going to say: :heart: :heart: :heart: SORRY ALL AROUND. :heart: :heart: :heart:

and walk away from this thread.

No worries. The written word can be hard to decipher sometimes and it can be easy to misjudge tone, etc.; just wanted to make sure you know that you are welcome here. It's all good, no harm done.
