    Breathe!

    Hello friends,

    Looking through the boards, reading the active topics, it seems that everyone is getting mired in views, holding on to views, building castles out of views.

    How about we all take a collective breath, smile, and go slowly?

    We're all here to practice, and I don't think that anyone is intentionally trying to throw a wrench in the works. We are a Sangha--differences come up, but we must all work at harmony.

    Just a thought.

    Much metta,

    Perry

    As I said earlier, quoting Thich Nhat Hanh (who was paraphrasing the Buddha in the Sattipatina Sutra,) "Breathing in I calm my body, breathing out I smile..."

    I'm still just starting to learn. I'm not a teacher. Please don't take anything I say too seriously. I already take myself too seriously!
