Howdy.

Postby Kingdubrock » Tue Aug 20, 2013 9:53 pm

I have actually been posting for about a week and havent introduced myself yet.
So, hi! :smile:

My name is Mark. I live in Toronto. I've been into the dharma for about 14 years now. Went back to grad school after i lost my job and am doing my thesis about mindfulness in all its currently popular contexts - Buddhist, MBSR and "Langerian".
Some of my questions will likely be related to my work. But I also spend waaay too much time in isolation reading and writing since I've been in school, and would also enjoy just hanging out and talking shop with y'all.

Love,
Mark

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

Greetings Mark and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
kind regards,

Ben
“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.”

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

Welcome :)

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the wingèd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.
