Time to Move On...Thank You All
    #3649040 - 01/19/05 05:41 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I know what I need to be doing with my life and the Shroomery has become an unhealthy habit keeping me from doing it.

There is no truth in words. There is no truth in philosophy or religion or belief. Everything we can possibly think is only an abstraction of the truth. People can spend thier entire lives searching for truth in concepts rather than finding truth in the experience of life. I'm afraid I am falling into this category. I've had enough mental masturbation. Time to make love with the real thing.

For me, the real thing is rasing my family, taking care of my health, doing everything as best as I can, practicing zazen, staying positive, loving everyone and everything, helping in any way that I can, creating, growing, discovering and being thankful for the gift of living this life.

Although there is no truth in concepts, they can help us to find truth by pointing the way. Many of you have helped me by pointing where you think I should search. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I love you all!

Wonderful!  :yesnod: :hug: :cheers: :heartpump:

I'd rather know you were doing the above then see you posting about being in darkness and despair here. Most all of your post have been enlightened ones anyway, sounds like you just cleared the residual fog around you finally and I know the best is clearly in your view now for the taking and making. Cool Cool;)And create that garden and keep up with the music and drown those kids and your wife in love love love!!!!!

love you too!

Yes! You understand the point dude, go forth and make love to life, Forget this forum of endless distraction and concentrate on the important aspects of living. :smile:

Yes! well done! i feel very happy that you have realized the fruitlessness of concpetual fascination.  :smile:

I also will be leaving shortly as my time for solitary retreat grows near and most people on this forum although good hearted and well meaning individuals i have discovered arent interested in the spirutaul path as much as intellectual masturbation. Well all i can say is excellent, i can see a happy future for you indeed! :grin:

Their is a teaching in this for people who are open enough, one can read endlessly about sex, but until one does it one can never understand how it is!

Good luck, you have my sincere blessings!

Source, you will be missed.

i have been lurking the S and P for a while now, and congradulate you for your action and motivation :smile: :hug: Stay intrigued! and namaste!


--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

Source, I will miss you. I am moving on as well. As someone else posted on a thread he started, this is a negative forum. I'm done here.

Sorry to hear that, Frog. But I suggest you re-read your own signature and grok it in its fullness.

If you (and some others) truly understand its meaning, you will stay.

Frog can never leave us even if she left here she is so in my heart, so is source. People who find ways to touch you always remain with you.

frog to me has been the heart of this board. She's always welcomed newbies with an open heart and mind, just like a cool mom does when you bring a new friend home.

So, if its okay with the arm chair shrinks here, I am going to remain in denial that frog ever said she was leaving, pretend she is taking a slow boat to explore china with no return date if ever and just do what I can to maintain the essense of her spirit here while I am here.

I love you sooooooo much frog, your always here with me no matter where you are. :hug: :iloveyou: :thanx:

Source, we never got a chance to really chat one on one, but I've always really appreciated and related to your perspective.

I'd say "I wish you well" or something like that, but that wouldn't be very like me, so... Be safe and be well. I know you will. :smile:

P.S. If you want to keep in touch with a like-minded shroomerite, feel free to drop me an IM any time.. I'm DarkCiark on AIM.

And if not, that's okay too. :smile: Just incase I don't hear from you: Peace and love.  :heart:  :thumbup:

It was good to have you around Source. I know your insight helped me with a few things. Thank you.:heart:

You know it's kind of funny, sometimes if my brain is running a thousand miles a second, or I'm all groggy falling asleep I'll start thinking "What is this?!What is life?!" and I'll get myself into a tizzy and become overwhelmed. But lately when it happens I focus my attention on the deeper reality beyond my thoughts and its like "Oh, that's what it is. I forgot. Thank God, I was worried there!" I feel like this when I trip sometimes.

We are all just in a bad habit of looking for the wrong things in the frontal lobes.

I respect your position, but let me leave you with this parallel thought. Sharing at the Shroomery is like public worship in church, temple, mosque, grove, etc. The Real communion with Truth happens in solitude, in the intimacy of one's life and/or family. Pity the poor souls who believe that by going to worship publically, they are going to automatically transform their own impoverished inner lives. Go...live and experience...and when you have something that you feel might 'edify' the beings at the Shroomery, log in and share. People here are open to that, so practice your Bodhisattva Vow (or do your Christian duty, or whatever metaphor you cherish). This is a 'spore' market or a 'seed' market, and Ideas are by far the more important items we can come away with.

Peace.

That was rich!  :thumbup:

Nice observation you shared Markos. it is about how we take the public moments into our private ones and what we do with them there. :thumbup:
