I don't think change always means improvement.
Maybe you can share one or two insights you got from your return to NB?
I am not able to delve into a deep practice right now but the small mindfulness I have acquired has helped me greatly. Which just shows how powerful Buddhism is even in small doses.
Yes - oh, amen to that. Love how you put it, reminds me of when I very first made efforts and how great and wondrous it felt...lately, I've fallen off the wagon so to speak, and I gotta get back.
Yeah, just about the time you think certain regulars are never gonna show up again - there they are! Nice to have you back on scene again, @vinlyn.
...really, really love it when heart-warming threads like this blossom.
When my ex and I were dating, we used to go to a popular restaurant that had a large patio out back, and there was a prominent sign that said Do Not Feed the Birds. I said nuts to that, and paid the price. Pretty soon, a really ugly messed up bird showed up with bent feathers and looking sorta ill. Yuck!
