Re: boring questions about losing weight

I have been doing intermittent fasts continuously for more than 20 years now. I eat only once a day (every day except weekends) and feel no hunger during the day. :thumbsup: See the thread I posted to above over at DWT. I've been doing one meal a day for a long time too and maintain my ideal weight...

Re: boring questions about losing weight

I do intermittent feasting since more or less half a year. Breakfast, lunch, full stop. This is very relieving and it has an indirect effect on my food's composition too since chocolate and chips (crisps for the Brits) come in the evening. I didn't lose a single gram and sometimes it's socially awk...

Re: did you feel it?

Another one just a few minutes ago! About the same place as yesterday's quake. My whole house shook for about 10 seconds.

Preliminary reports say 7.1 but now they're saying could be more around 6.9

Re: Abridged Pali canon?

https://www.amazon.com/Buddhas-Words-Anthology-Discourses-Teachings-ebook/dp/B003XF1LIO I don't blame you, the full Pali Canon is roughly about 20,000 pages in five Nikayas. The book linked here is a compilation and translation by Bhikkhu Bodhi of the best, most important suttas, without all the rep...

Re: First Democratic Party Debate (June 26-27)

Too many candidates on the stage! They were all talking over each other and fighting. Looking forward to what Bill Maher has to say about it later today on his HBO show Real Time . He's a Dem, but always complains how the Dems ruin it for themselves by attacking each other. Williamson (ACIM self-hel...

After all what purpose would there be to discuss his spiritual accomplishments if he had no interest in teaching. ...

Re: Choosing between Chan, Zen, Jìngtǔzōng, and Jōdo Shinshū

Since you were a Theravadin at one time and appear to like all the schools of Buddhism, you might like Chan. Here is something I wrote over at DP: Chan Buddhism, the precursor to Zen (in Japan) is sort of like a "One Dharma" or "Buddhayana" all-inclusive Buddhism. They have monastic clergy members o...
