  • Re: Eclipse fever!!!

    I hadn't thought of that one (moms who push their daughters in beauty pageants) - definitely.

    I was thinking more in terms of nosy moms - but I wish I had been more nosy with my son. Trouble is, one doesn't know if it would/could help or not, in the long run.

    I agree, @karasti isn't one of them. B)

    @karasti said, "He lives for those kinds of experiences, and I wish I could be there with him for all of them, lol. Not in a creepy mom kind of way..."

    creepy mom?! O.o
    I'm sorry, @karasti, but there is no. such. thing. :innocent:

  • Re: Why Buddhism ?

    I've always been interested in spiritual stuff/religion and have belonged to several spiritual-leaning forums ever since I've been involved on-line with stuff. One cyber-friend invited me to a forum that focuses on non-dual stuff. I think he thought it would help me cope with my son's death. There were some very harsh 'teachers' and we had many run-ins.

    My curiosity made me stick around just in case someone said something that actually helped my understanding of non-duality. Then, out of the blue, I discovered Buddhism is a non-dual thingy, so off I went to learn all I could and the books I read were so helpful, and reading Buddhist magazines on-line and last but not least, happening upon NB! {hugz all around}. It's amazing the difference it has made in my heart and mind and life.
