A posting by a 'juvenile senior citizen'

Do not click on this link if you are not amused by juvenile humor that is beneath someone of my age and standing. It is a funny -- in my opinion --, but it is a bit of a profane acceptance speech for LOTR which doubtless will not be to everyone's taste. Here is a chance to practice restraint.

And if you do not like, you were warned, so no complaining.

Thanks Tilt, you put a much needed smile on my face!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

hilarious thank you :clap: :jumping: :twothumbsup:
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.
