To all or none, Buddhism,in my opinion ,is to rid of suffering to attain happiness,simply put. One must feel no fear,no attachments to earthly and spiritual ideas,concept,cravings and fetters.One must be free to choose his words spoken ,his actions based on his morality. Isn't everything,mere Illusions? With Metta a freed loongdragon

Hi Loongdragon,

I understand that the owner of BellaOnline has permitted you access to the forums again many months after she had prohibited you from them for various violations of forum policy.

One of those violations was that you had referred to me as "muchacha/muchacho" after I had posed a very relevant comment to one of your postings. Since I had been informed that your forum access was being permanently removed, I at that time did not ask for an apology. Since that is not the case, I am asking from you for a public apology at this time.

Dear Les, If in any way ,I have offended you,for that I sincerely apologise I will not give reasons for why I could have acted this way. My apology is as sincere as the sun rose up this morning. May the Universe give you the power of forgiveness. _/\_ loongdragon

To all or none, If someone reads the text of 783618,he/she will understand the changes that I have brought to my views on Buddhism and on Normand Joly/loong.If anyone else,was offended at one point, I publicly apologise for that. I shall not be as active ,as I was at my first stint here.This is what 783618,means. May loving kindness be spread on each and every one of you. _/\_ loongdragon

Hi Loongdragon,

I have always had the power of forgiveness but not the power of forgetedness.

Great, I hope we can all move forward. I think problems last time were exacerbated by language and cultural barriers also. That is not excusing anything that was said, but individuals are not always aware of what is or isn't considered offensive to others, so we need to be clear when we are offended and why. I also think that sometimes we editors dominate the forums and can appear very 'team-like' and that can actually discourage non-editors from participating. A friend who visited the forums mentioned this to me, so I just thought I would mention it here also. I know we are all trying to support each other, but lets work together to make others feel welcome also. Thanks:-)

Dear Lisa and all, I fully accept the blame for my words and writings,including my attitude.I am known in circles as a man that is very direct. Also at that time ,I did not realise ,even with the warnings of Lisa Shea,that I was acting in this group ,as we usually act in Buddhist groups,questionning the opinion of others. At last ,I beleive I used false pride,unconsciously at that time. Thank you for your kind intervention.Again to those I might have hurt or insulted ,my most profound apologies. With Metta _/\_ loongdragon

Loong, I am THRILLED you are back! I missed you very much; your words always gave me real mental meat to chew. Sometimes the right teacher comes along for someone and I saw you as that for me.

I look forward to learning from you again.
