    I rest my case . . .

 

This has been an excellent demonstration of how the beliefs we hold in the less concrete realms really do matter . . . I’ll leave it at that . . .

    Re: I’m cured!!

This thread is waaaaay off-topic, not constructive, and just a tad sour.

I moved it.

Chris, one of the reasons I did this was to show how all groups works  Even though this community may be considered to be "alternative," or "progressive," or even "leading edge," notice the dynamics; what thought is allowable, what thought is not.  It’s interesting to note, every group is the same way.  It puts tremendous limits on individuals (and society’s institutions).

It’s not your thinking that’s the problem — please don’t bring up this strawman, please don’t obfuscate and misrepresent — but your pretentiousness and self-importance. Your reflections on Eastern thinking/philosophy are at best amateurish and are antithetical to what many I know would claim is its actual purpose. I know you tried really hard to be "mind blowing," but, please, now, take your childish charade elsewhere.

Thank you for you insightful and compassionate analysis.

Since this has been moved to this forum, I will be a little more blunt than I would be on the main site.

I think you are way off base on this one. Who made you teacher to all us underdeveloped close minded fools?

I don’t think anyone ever said you can’t think a certain way. Everyone here has a different thought process, but somehow we still manage to function as a community. You are turning this into some kind of soap opera in what can only be assumed is a plea for attention, or perhaps an underfunded ego. Don’t bring that stuff here, we have enough to deal with.

Just because you have a thought, doesn’t mean you need to bring it to these forums. What I have seen from you has little to do with the 3 E’s, and very little of it is grounded in reality. To get nasty because you were asked to stay on topic is ridiculous and foolish. Why is this so hard to see for someone as enlightened as you say you are?

Time to quit playing head games and become a valuable member of the community. This site is not your personal plaything or soap box. Since you are hearing this from multiple people, perhaps it has more to do with you than the other posters here.

I have a neighbor who is in a fight of some kind with everyone around him. According to him, this guy waters his lawn too much, this gal lets her kids hit balls into his yard, this one has a dog he doesn’t like and calls the cops on them to get the dog taken from the family, and when they put up a fence to eliminate the problem, he complains about the ugly fence. I guess all those neighbors are the problem, huh?

Think about it.

There are so many interesting things about this but perhaps none more than the fact that I have not held anything out to be true.  I have only challenged assumptions.  This makes people uncomfortable.  I have attacked nobody.  I have been attached repeatedly.  I have been evenhanded, yet I have had personal insults leveled at me by people who have no idea who I am.  Even you assume what type of life I live or the relationships I must have.  Do you actually believe you know who I am?

This is how groups work and why society is like it is.  You think you know, but you do not.

Can’t resist, can you?  All you need to do it let go and join those out on the edge.  Think about the possibilities!

    Re: I’m cured!!

Hey deleted:   If this is your attempt to get others to think, then in my opinion you failed miserably.  All you did was bring up a lot of reaction which also served no real purpose other than to let you know how unacceptable your covert ranting appears.  

I surely must have missed something when I signed up for this site over a year ago.  I thought it was intended to bring me helpful and intelligent information that would assist me in making decisions regarding my future and that of my family.  If I had wanted a seminar that would jerk me around and cause me to think, I would have signed up for one of those. (I’ve done several in the past, as a matter of fact, with good success.)

 I think we can all see clearly now why  you were "told that you could no longer contribute to this community,"  and why Chris moved your post this time.  I can’t find any real value either, in what you "contributed" in this post.

We might all do well to be reminded that this site is a serious effort to educate us, and each other, with information that is beneficial to us for the stated purpose of the site.  Thank you for allowing me to express my opinion on this subject.
