  1. Re: sharing my frustration about all these 'endless waiting' for REAL CHANGES to happ

    I think that as we go through life our opinions and demeanours swing sometimes with great amplitude in different directions.

    My current position on the “waiting for things to happen” theme is that...
  2. Re: Once you met the Lord Creator, you will never love any human or anything else aga

    Anyone who comes here quoting the bible and trying to advance the tenets of religion based on early Judaism, Christianity or Islam are easy pickings for ridicule and rebuttal.

    So you have to ask...

    Re: Buddhism in a nutshell.

    This is in response to Bob’s post earlier (#90)

    I would say that we have a well constructed description of the main tenets of Buddhism (i.e. “The Four Seals of Dharma”) and I’d like to take them...

    Re: Buddhism in a nutshell.

    This thread appears to have morphed into a philosophical discussion on the practice of “my religion is better than your religion”. It should be noted that we humans, without exception, have this...

    Re: Buddhism in a nutshell.

    Hi Kathie,

    Here we go again. You missed the most salient point. Making a cheese sandwich is not a religion because the steps and the end goal are well defined. I said that quite clearly. The steps...

    Re: Buddhism in a nutshell.

    Tony,

    Re: Buddhism in a nutshell.

    On the question of spirituality, while it is commendable that people have good intentions when exhaling their rhetoric upon us, we have to be weary of where it actually stands.

    Hi Tony,
