For Example the Dali Lama Thread

There was a time when this thread started out by giving daily lessons or a meditation for the day as a quote or reflection from the Dali Lama.

Then negativeness under the guise of ego took over this thread.

Please simply give me no show offs, 'I know more than you dos' argumentative, and oneupmanship types.

I suppose I really wanted to keep it simple and log on daily to words of wisdom, challenge, and a learning.

Then this site became political ... which always feels to me like a potential for and of debate. Why choose to malign someone who does show a way to peace and serenity by dragging in politics? If you don't like and respect him move on to what you do love and admire.

This is simply one voice presenting an alternate approach

Littlespirit.

I wholeheartedly agree with what you write.

In particular, I fully concur with this statement of yours:

"I suppose I really wanted to keep it simple and log on daily to words of wisdom, challenge, and a learning."

That was and is my daily intent in posting these insights on the 'Dalai Lama's Insights' thread.

Unfortunately, someone else has a different agenda, and thus the train has now been de-rails, so to speak. Because of not being in control of either this site or the 'Dalai Lama's Insights' thread, I can do little other than to try to not give up on carrying on with what I consider a worthwhile daily undertaking under difficult circumstances. In the very least, by accepting this commitment, I am forced by circumstances to read the daily insights and to think about their meaning each day. This alone is good for me.

Littlespirit, if someone was a fan of Hitler and wanted to quote him to show him how 'wise' he was, its ok for someone else to come and tell people about what Hitler really did and what he really was.

Its not about politics. Its about how Tibetan people were treated under the Dalai Lamas. These Lamas have claimed to be symbols of peace and justice. Nothing is further from the truth and I feel its important for atleast one person to do the job of letting people know. I do that by posting excerpts from Michael Parenti and other people who know about the history of Tibet. In many cases, these people have been there themselves and witnessed torture and subjugation of the serfs enslaved by the Dalai Lamas. We must never forget history.

As again, people can easily choose to ignore anything they dont like - thats perfectly fine. I do the same but I want to do my part in telling the truth about a different side of the Dalai Lamas than what is being advertised here.

Dear guest_guest.

It seems to me that as visitors in other people's online quest and threads, that asking for them to agree with us is unrealistic. Perhaps even self-centred.

I don't know how to tell you this guest_guest

yet need to ask ... and you will probably take this the wrong way anyway, since that is my ongoing experience of you.

Its not that I focus on what I don't like (yet that may be your rationale),
... rather mine is much simpler, and its this ... focussing on what I do like ... it's a choice.

This thread is not an advertisement or looking for members. Its all a choice.

Your goal may not be mine.

Yet if I live in the past I am unable to fully experience the present and learn a lesson or two since my glasses have backward vision pimarily>

Its good for me that the threads broke off.

Thankyou.

What this site has taught me is that when I recognize what is holding me back from growth ... then and only then am I able to break free from/and of the oppressor.

Its not that your message is not the truth. I also have a perception of the what I experience as the truth based on my own life experiences and would appreciate that you also choose to to listen to me without immediately going to rebuttal and stating I am wrong or disallusioned and need to agree with you and your position

hi Littlespirit, you want to talk to me, I assume?

>> I also have a perception of the what I experience as the truth based on my own life experiences

Thast absolutely true. We all have our own perception of what is true, right and what makes sense. Its important and crucial to trust our judgements and at the same time, be open to any conflicting information that might help us make a better informed decision which is different from what we believe currently. It is also a person's right to believe anything they want to believe.

Also, you can realize that everyone has separate opinions and no one is forcing you to believe them. You're free to believe in anything you like. :D. (gosh I have repeated this for the third time now in this post, oops.... apologies) Did I answer your questions?

The most important thing is for you to trust your own judgement and as you say, preception. There's nothing more important than that.
