Re: How many practitioners visit a Doctor of Tibetan Medicine?

I have not visited one, but plan to when I can. I hope you get to have the experience. It's also a great opportunity to ask a lot of questions about what diet, lifestyle, habits, and attitudes are most suitable for you as a unique individual. Kevin... I know of one I can visit, he's just in another...

Re: Big changes over at DW (Theravada) and new forum

Call me old fashioned, but I find it poor form to talk like this to someone double your age, JD. Many good folks take political stances very close to heart. I've also met some lovely people who espoused bizzare political views. We have to be careful not to make too much of it. The thicket of views ...

Re: Big changes over at DW (Theravada) and new forum

should do the same thing here. the only reason it doesn't cause strife here is because those who are in the minority know to keep quite since the mods will shut down any dissenters Right on; when the Left is in control they stay that way with domination & intolerance. You post random political stuf...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

Can we keep on topic please, at least confine it gun policy, homicide by firearm etc. I am not sure what that video is supposed to prove, nor how it represents anything particularly "right" or "left", as much as it represents old media wanting to discredit new media. But yes, there are some proposal...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

...... If you are not willing to read the articles then its senseless to try and respond to them. I couldn't read the whole things due to time constraints. OK, now I have read them both.

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

Its a good article IMO, it brings up some of the points I mentioned, without claiming there is no problem, or suggesting crazy solutions.

The point made on the possible media racial bias of believing there is an 'epidemic' for the group least affected by gun violence is a good one too.

Re: Open Heart/Kim Katami and Song of Vajra

Hello, does anybody know anything about this group? They will be giving lung (although they call it empowerment) to Song of Vajra and some text by longchenpa. Does anyone know anything about them? It seems kinda fake-ish. https://www.facebook.com/events/402470300219298/ http://www.en.openheart.fi/3...

Re: Mind out of control

Language gets weird here, but any "control" you exert over your mind is relative, it might appear to be "control", but is actually just management of something already in motion, sort of like directing a stream by placing obstacles to direct the current. What you can control are some of your habits,...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

It's great to clamp down on sale of weapons and materials which may be used as weapons, but there also needs to be very proactive work to identify kids at risk of becoming deranged mass killers. I'm no expert, but surely there must be some patterns...? Of course. Just hang out with some kids in the...
