Oh stop it.
You guys are making me blush.

Thanks!

With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

Happy happy day my friend, may it be filled with blessings and joy. :namaste:

Kindest wishes, Dave
Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them
~The Buddha~

Happy Birthday!

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

We dwarves live to be ancient so it is actually only about 14 in dwarf years.

I'm 32 and 1/2 years old (which I, if I were a dwarf too, reckon would be approximately 13 and 5/8 years old).

So unlike you Nangwa, I'm still frozen, as I'm not to quite to 33° like the Scottish Rite.

Happy (belated?) Birthday :cheers:
