About Wolfscalissi

edited June 2005 in Buddhism Today
I admit I caught my mind prejudging. When I first saw Wolfscalissi's picture of him with his hands in a praying position I thought to myself "Oh boy, this guy takes himself waaay too seriously". I assumed he was pompous and smug.
Since then, Wolf's posts have proven to be wise, insightful, and helpful. One of Wolf's posts suggested that we should sit and watch the show our mind puts on. Ever since then I have done just that and I had a bit of a breakthrough recently...a moment of clarity...and the meaning of Wolf's words came into crystal clear focus.
Wolf: I apologize for judging you and thank you, thank you for your helpful posts. :bowdown:

    Sometimes I think Wolf is too serious but I value his insight. I am not sorry for the way I feel. I respect you Wolf no matter what and I am honored to have you walking on the path with me. Gassho.

    I thought he was a little serious until I saw the smile on his face and the joy in his eyes in the photo of him and Isabella. Beautiful.

    Well, he soon will.... I'm advised of all posts, so he's bound to pop in sometime... he may call himself 'Wolf... but I think he's just a cuddly labrador puppy....*giggle*!! ;)

    Hello. I am new to this forum, and hope you don't mind my contributing.

    Wolfscalissi introduced me this site (thank you...it is a very nice e-sangha). I have to say that I really like meeting people first via words. So much more like a meeting of the minds, sometimes like a 'transmission'. Like the metaphor of '4 corners', to me Wolf's prescence is like one of those corners.

    I also respect Mike because he has helped to show me things from a different angle. He is older than I am and has more experience in life. I would be foolish to not listen to him. His advice is more times than not right on. He shares his experiences with us freely and allows us to see his wisdom as well as his flaws. You can't ask more of someone than that. Three cheers to Mike and everyone esle here at newbuddhist.com!

    Wolf, i like your hands in gassho. It acknowledges that you view all of us as Buddhas, even when we don't always act like Buddhas.

    Blessings!


    ps. i also like the photo of you and your daughter! :)

    I think we should all have avatars of ourselves with the gassho in front of our face. Then when people come to the site they will all think we have lost our minds. LOL :crazy:

    here I go getting all "serious" again

    GASSHO:

    The word /gassho/ literally means "To place the two palms together". Of all the mudras (symbolic hand-gestures or positions) we use, it is perhaps the most fundamental, for it arises directly from the depths of enlightenment. Its uses are many, but most commonly it is employed to express respect, to prevent scattering of the mind, to unify all polarities (such as left and right, passive and dominant, etc.) and to express the One Mind -- the total unity of Being. and exactly how would this make people think we had lost our minds? :confused:

    I have a deep respect for thwe teachings of the Buddha and In that I am serious.

    ^gassho^ I bow to the Buddha in you

    I had a keyring once which had the slogan
    "Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most."

    One day, I lost it. And yes, I miss it!! :lol:
    My mind went AWOL ages ago.... it has been replaced by a small furry rodent eating liquorice allsorts....

    Wolfscalissi, if Buddha knew you were sooooo serious - he'd probably have a good laugh! smile fellah, it's all illusory anyway! :)
