    He was the dragon in the BBC show Merlin, wasn't he?

    If I am not mistaken, he was also in the elephant man. The movie made me cry. :3

    Funny part? The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know. So I feel less wise by the day.

    Socrates, is that you?

    Seriously, isn't that a good thing? In zen i believe there is this empty cup analogy. To free your mind of all preconceptions, so-called knowledge, ideas, ideals, so that you may have insight.

    I thought it was some kind of saying or something that I've never heard of before and somehow I knew that @JaySon wasn't sitting there with a plate of crow and mashed potatoes and coleslaw :p

    Similar to 'eating your own words'. Not literal.

    @dhammachick, balls of steel are like gum-drops to me.

    Now that's more lady-like. ;)

    Seriously, @federica, if you find it insulting please delete the comment. Didn't mean to hurt anyone, just thought it'd be okay in a general banter forum.

  • Re: Sexual Misconduct

    I think sexual morality is given way much too importance in most religions. Maybe it is a way to control people ... by making them feel guilty? I don't know, just saying.

    There are many enlightened masters who believe that as laypersons (as opposed to monks), we should focus on becoming more and more mindful, more compassionate. That way sexual morality (for lack of a better term) may come about naturally.
