  • Re: I really, really love it when....

    I really, really love it when my 4 year old tells me to "just breathe, dad. In through the nose, out through the mouth. You'll be fine."

  • Re: Balancing compassion without being a pushover

    Thanks for all the words of wisdom. I read a bit last night then sat in my naughty corner and thought about it.

    I'm fairly well settled, management has our backs and my kids were all snuggly last night.

    I enjoy the Twitter Machine™

    Sometimes my hippie views are mocked by "more (western) civilized minds" but, no sweat off my back. As long as I can get a few nuggets of wisdom and Star Trek discussion, I'm happy with it.

  • Re: Martial Arts and Buddhism - Is it acceptable?

    I've done martial arts for most of my life- Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, Judo.. And since I've started down the Buddhist path, I've not found anything that would make the two incompatible.

    I am also a (retired) pro wrestler, and I really didn't see anything that made those two incompatible either. The way I look at it, is that I played a family friendly character, did comedy, and did my best to make people happy. When I played a villain, I gave people someone to project their bad feelings on (and they got to be happy when the good guy was beating me up.)

    I think, as long as the goal is to alleviate suffering in any way you can, you're probably on the right path. Just my guess though.
