Holy crap! It's been three years since I was last here? Wow.
So I've had another kid since then. I currently have a six yr old and a two yr old. They keep me busy.
Do people have a preference if I use Peter or kc2dpt? I don't use my name on any site so it's an odd feeling for me.

Hi Peter,

Either way, but once you've decided it would be best to let admin know so they can deactivate the other account. You wouldn't want to get done for double-nicking :lol:

I hope things are going great for you on the family front.

How has it been running this forum? I'm a bit surprised y'all are still here and keeping on with it. There are some interesting new forums and sub forums. And that guide to starting new thread is quite nice.

How else am I going to argue with myself about rebirth and annata and stuff? :lol:

Honestly, if I had my choice, I'd delete the new kc2dpt account and change the name on the Peter account to kc2dpt.

I have no complaints. Thanks for asking. :)

Greetings Peter,

How has it been running this forum? I'm a bit surprised y'all are still here and keeping on with it. There are some interesting new forums and sub forums. And that guide to starting new thread is quite nice.

Pretty good... compared to E-Sangha it's a very different dynamic having Theravada and the broader Mahayana collective separated across two different sites.

Participation and activity is pretty constant overall all, yet people come, people go, people come back again... I'm sure you can relate.

Honestly, if I had my choice, I'd delete the new kc2dpt account and change the name on the Peter account to kc2dpt.

I'll have a go at doing that for you now...

EDIT:.... and done.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Welcome back!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Neat. It just feels more comfortable having this name. Thanks for that.

It's crazy... I don't even remember this forum. 3 yrs ago. Wow. I hope participating will be a more positive thing for me this time. And I hope my presence will be positive for others. :)
