Considering returning to forums for a bit.

Post by Jesse » Tue May 02, 2017 3:41 pm

Hello all,

I'm an older member here, I left sometime back.. not on exactly great terms, alas... I've found myself wanting to participate again. I am curious on the thoughts of some of the older members who know me.

Would I be welcomed back?

Thanks.

Anyone true to the Buddhist principle of non-aversion would welcome you back. Welcome back!

I'm happy to be welcomed back. I hope everyone is doing well. It's been quite a while since I've practiced. Hopefully being back will help me to rebegin some sort of practice.
