I have and it's not necessarily a bad thing for sure, if it gets us to drop some bad habits and develop more wholesome behaviours. But if we become averse to the sort of things that are part ...

Re: What is conducive to awakening?

hmmm, the way the question is worded may lead to the assumption that there would be things that in and of themselves are conducive to awakening, a kind of generic or universalized principle, without considering that what is or is not conducive may depend on specific instances or cases, which may no...

Re: Personal Issue: Help Sought

Greets everyone! I don't really see what is the problem - the basis of this avoidance - of meeting people who are doing drugs.
