Hi Durt,

welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:anjali:
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

(SN 22.97)

To practice is to know your defilements,

welcome Aboard
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

No, I don't. Tell us what you are saying.

I think this is more your style DD:

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I'm not sure how much truth is in the statement, 'haters are going to hate'. I assume a 'hater' is one who hates something, so that strikes me as a rather pointless tautology. I take my practice seriously and enjoy this board because of the richness of information provided by the participants. I am an English speaker and this is an English forum. I am sure you are providing rich information, but I'm afraid I won't be able to understand it unless English is used.
