This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Hello Carlos
I have been keeping a very close eye on you.

“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

Hi Carlos,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel, although it seems like you have been here for a while now. But I guess it only has been a couple of weeks.

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
