Beautiful initiative lee!

Beautiful initiative lee!

I agree with you. sometimes when you are new to some website you may be a bit afraid to express your thoughts, you may underestimate them (and here there are numerous advanced people who express themselves and their teachings wonderfully so it looks like who I am to write here...).

But I learned that I can lean from anybody, anybody. Spirituality as opposed to religion is not a propriety of anybody and this is the beauty!

when you're new

i agree, tania. good post. but those who are really "more advanced" make room for others. i can play rough with the best of them, and even enjoy it. but sometimes we can get carried away, and forget that there are those who are just spreading their wings, or simply are not rough-housers.

"But I learned that I can lean from anybody, anybody. Spirituality as opposed to religion is not a propriety of anybody and this is the beauty!"

very well said!

silently for me

There are many like me who prefer to be here and to read and usually are not interested in exhibiting. Some kind of stillness and humility. We are still very active and our energy can be clearly felt here, sometimes even more than of those who can't help it but be over vocal in endless futile comments and non-spiritual quarrels that are clearly not of general interest.

When One is trying to unveil the Mind and realise the Self ,won't adding new posts add to the verbiage.Reading some blogs and teachings does aid to clear the path.

who am I?

you have a good point. but what do we read- words- posts- blogs. if no one wrote there wouldn't be a forum- and nothing to read.

in a sense, whether one reads or writes- since words are words- does it really matter if one is just reading?

the blogs and teachings that do aid in clearing the path were written. and how do we know that if we post something it might not help clear the path for someone?

words- read and written can be insighful. but only being still can aid in self realizaton. but words can help point to this stillness.

presence can be in words- read or written. but it is the space between them that is the real truth.

i enjoyed from you!
