Hello everyone I am new to the path but I just wanted to say that I have been practicing my meditation and I think I am finally getting there my mind cleared out and I felt at peace and a connection but at the same time it was like there was more and I needed to go "deeper" but I couldn't it was like I was glued where I was but I could come back to me just not go further than where I was I don't understand what that was any ideas

"So, then," someone asked the newcomer, "What are ye then? Are ye a Catholic or a Protestant?"

"Well, neither, actually," our hero replied. "I'm an atheist."

"All right then, but are ye a Catholic atheist or a Protestant atheist?"


I wish I'd had this anecdote to hand sooner, it would have saved a lot of explanation earlier.....LoLoL  ::) ::) ;D ;D

FW, your citation is quite funny.

.... so there was this English visitor in Northern Ireland, dropped into the local pub one evening and got talking with the regulars (I guess this happened out in the country somewhere, rather than in Belfast, where things might have become a little more ..... shall we say heated?). The conversation turned to matters of religion.

"So, then," someone asked the newcomer, "What are ye then? Are ye a Catholic or a Protestant?"

"Well, neither, actually," our hero replied. "I'm an atheist."

"All right then, but are ye a Catholic atheist or a Protestant atheist?"

It seems to me that, if you can find the answer to that question, you have achieved total enlightenment, and have earned the right to step forever off the Wheel of Karma.

Or, to put everything into its true perspective; as any Irishman worth his Old Bushmills would say, when pressed for a definite answer to a question; "Well, it is and it isn't."

It is perhaps not generally known that the venerable sage Mullah Nasrudin, whom the Sufis insist on claiming as their own, was actually an Irishman from Donegal.

It was my good friend Patrick Declan O'Malley, the Seer of Burtonport, who told me this. He was drunk at the time, but he was very insistent, and who am I to call him a liar?

Alchymist.

I still have a few years before I can move in that direction.  But I do intend to be there at some point in the next 15 years or so if I'm still around.

I imagine that before long, cannabis will be legal nationwide, once the bureaucrats see that residents the two states that have legalized it (and the half the country that decriminalized it) can still function in society (as functional as society currently is anyway).  Maybe I can take up such a source of income in my neck of the woods when the time comes since I plan on an itinerant lifestyle once I retire.  Anyway, it's great to hear the medicinal qualities of this herb are coming to the forefront.

Anyway, great to see you here!

And thanks for the warm welcomes from those I have yet to harass talk to in the fora.  I look forward to educating learning from all of you.

Good to see ya man!  I'm moving in the opposite direction; I retired from the corporate world, and now I'm an itinerant agricultural worker.  Of course the agriculture has it's advantages... I work trimming cannabis at a legal grow in Colorado... nice cottage industry, and also a growth industry, and trimming was my way in. 

Some friends of mine developed something you may have heard of, Charlotte's Web.  It's a strain of cannabis that stops seizures in many people, most notably a little girl named Charlotte; she went from one seizure about every 5 to 15 minutes, to only one or none in a week, almost from the first dose.

When I'm trimming, I absorb enough CBD through my hands, and inactive THC (which only becomes psychoactive when heated) to reduce the inflammation in my thumbs.  Before the 19th century, it was routinely prescribed for migraine headaches.

I was reading the thread (IIRC it was in IA) about your surgery.  Sounds like it's been a rough go, but I'm glad you're recovering.  I hope this time it sticks and you don't have to continue with getting these surgeries.

I'm proud of you for being sober for 2.5 years.  I'm not really shocked.  I always knew you had it in you.  I'm just glad you got through the challenge and stuck with it.  I'm impressed.

As for me, I've been busy climbing the corporate ladder.  An opportunity presented itself for advancement which involved relocation, so I find myself living in Dayton and running 11 restaurants.

Age coupled with stress on the job has let me to some new found health issues which I'm currently contending with.  Been in the ER twice since August (and you know it wasn't by choice given my aversion to allopathic medicine).  I'm currently dealing with these and trying to find a holistic practitioner whenever I find time when I'm not working.

I've been thinking about you all (obviously since I found my way back) and wondering what everyone's been up to.  I'm glad to see some of you still here.  I'm not gonna lie.  I'm a bit saddened by the loss of SF (didn't learn about that til yesterday) and the disappearance of some old compadres.  But there are still some familiar faces around here (a couple that choose to pretend I'm not here, but that's okay) and some new ones with whom I look forward to becoming better acquainted.

But I digress.  It's good to see you again, M.

I do.  It's a great record. :)

How has life been treating you? I had to have back surgery again.  In fact, it took two operations to get me back on my feet this time.  My recovery goes well.  I have been back at home and living with my parents for quite a while now.  I am 2.5 years sober.  Major shock huh?  I think about you and what you've been up to often.  Details man.  Details......
