  • Re: Medicinal/Therapeutic Use of Plants and Herbs

    Huh, that's interesting! I turned orange as a toddler because all I would eat, apparently, was carrots. I looked like an oompa loompa.

  • Re: Love - shaped hole in Buddhism?

    I wouldn't call anything that results from Playboy or the like "love" or anything close to it. Lust, desire sure. But love?

  • Re: Eating meat and first precept

    There are 2 other discussions about the topic that have been ongoing just this month. If you do a search at the top for "vegetarian" they'll come up. But be warned it is probably the most controversial topic on the board and discussions usually end up devolving quickly, :lol: It's just a very individual thing that we have to visit and investigate repeatedly for ourselves for a million reasons. Even the highest Buddhist teachers don't all agree on it. That's all I'm going to say. For real. Not even coming back after this comment.

  • Re: Journal

    I have the hardest time using tech stuff to keep track of anything! I find myself annoyed when reminders come through because they almost always come at times I can't deal with them, so I have to cancel (and then forget) or snooze them so they come up too often. I never remember which app I used for what, and lose stuff anyways, LOL. I set up a few reminders for monthly household things and mostly just delete them and then, again, forget about them :lol: I get, for some reason, much more satisfaction from coloring in a box in a journal that says I did something rather than crossing it off on my phone or computer. My college son uses a paper planner for school despite being a complete tech kid who runs his entire apartment from google home.
