Lol, the official version of success. I was a minor player.

Re: Responsibly Intolerant

Funny, just the other day you credited me with having a hand in JC's departure from this forum. No, I did not do so. In fact, I did not mention any of Mr Cohen's departures from DW. You had some success in going after lightweights like Mr J. Cohen Sorry, I misinterpreted what you meant by success. ...

Re: Responsibly Intolerant

Yesterday I read a critique of Dharmawheel that claims this forum is dominated by a group of intolerant traditionalists. I think this claim is absurd really, because every belief system is to some degree intolerant of divergent views. The individual making the claim that Dharmawheel is dominated by...

Re: Responsibly Intolerant

So noble, not protecting the Dharma but the helpless people. I forgot that this stuff is somewhat like brain surgery. But wait, are you at least a somewhat qualified surgeon?

Re: Responsibly Intolerant

It helps that we now have a sister site for interfaith-type discussion, http://www.dharmapaths.com incidentally. I don't know if I could get used to that color scheme. That is not close-mindedness or silence, it can be if the advice is off, but much of time it actually IS an attempt to help, even i...

Re: Responsibly Intolerant

Who is a "traditionalist" is so contextual, some of the people who (I can predict) would be singled out as being traditionalists might not actually be on the more orthodox side of the traditions they practice in. Much of what they say might simply seem "traditional" because the ...

Re: Responsibly Intolerant

I feel more like helping. There's a difference between "tolerance" and "correction," however. Sometimes people are wrong. Not all views can be continued in BuddhDharma, regardless of what your particular school or affiliation is.... It sounds to me like you're saying that you're...

Coincidentally, I happened on this article just now from the Lion's Roar: https://www.lionsroar.com/false-comfort-familiar/ It's short so I'll post it here in its entirety.

Re: Privilege?

Anyway our friend Harvey HIlbert would do well to talk less and think more, because he's embarrassed himself with some lazy thinking. Unfortunately, he conforms to that same stereotype. Think bad. Sit good! You haven't addressed his thinking. Harvey HIlbert's article is informed by his considerable...

Re: Practical Recognition of Ignorance

I like your description.

For what it's worth, just recently I've come to realize that "monkey mind" is merely an agitated mind. I used to believe that monkey mind was a kind of habit or ingrained tendency. All we need to accomplish is to calm the mind and the rest will follow.

Re: Where does religion end and superstition begin - from Nichiren and Superstition

Is the desire for meaning 'natural'? I don't see it that way. It is part of your conditioned thinking to seek for meaning. It is a cultural input. The desire for food, shelter, and survival, might be natural desires, but organic foods, castles, and hi-so society, are conditioned thinking which has ...
