Confession of Wrong doing

Post by Strive4Karuna » Sat Dec 09, 2017 7:16 pm

I do not know how long ago it was, sometime earlier this year but I was put on suspension from this board for claiming to be the next Buddha, Maitreya. I want to make a confession to help alleviate any negative kamma that has accrued from my past offense. I was heavily under the use of Marijuana at the time and was not conducting myself properly,not only by the use of intoxicants but through sexual misconduct.

I must have missed that episode - but is good that you have overcome that delusion, and (I assume/hope) stopped engaging in that kind of behavior. Being able to admit faults, and to correct them, is a sign of progress.
