Its actually quite funny and ironic. I started this thread because I was pleased to see another thread get rescued from what i see as the treacle of good intention, only to see this this thread becoming treacly..
I guess there is a moral here for me, when things are looking good dont mess with them by dwelling in either aversion or attraction, just move on PeterB
. its tempting i find to see threads and posts as one's children, but they are not. Even one's children are not really..
So, if what went out with a particular intention ends up as a water-cooler around which the like- minded can gather, then thats the nature of Anatta.
