Marvelous example of a blog.
Full of honesty, experience and integrity. In many ways if we listen and read in the spirit that someone has something to offer us, we gain insights. I find a blog or spiritual journal is a marvelous tool of unraveling. We need this reflection of ourselves. We need this understanding. We perhaps need to listen . . . to ourselves if no one else . . .  :hug:

It can be pretty interesting. And, it has free data for those who like to play with statistics.

Our Tri Teams updates go on here:

.... just in case you are interested.

But better, should you want to know about my travels to Colorado, go here:

Some of the entries are in German, but the important ones are in both languages. (oh, and excuse my foul language, I don't mean it and have a very dry sense of humour.... since you don't know me, please don't take offence)

 :cheesy:

Be well,
Melanie

Been running this for about two years now. Recently decided to make weekly - rather than monthly - updates. Because of reasons... :)

Online Ego Self-fullfilment and aggrandizement. Just what the World needs most ......    :twocents:


IMHO I feel blogging and online discussion forums go hand-in-hand. Blogs typically have a "comment" function where readers can respond and dialog ensues. Not so different from a forum, no? Blogs are not necessarily self aggrandizement. Just like with a forum, it depends on the intention of the blogger (poster), the content of the blog (posts) and several other factors.

Vajra Vehicle
May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes,
May all sentient beings be free of suffering and its causes,
May all sentient beings never be separated from bliss without suffering,
May all sentient beings be in equanimity, free of ignorance, attachment and aversion.

I agree with what you said here Vajra -  it depends on the intention of the blogger (poster), the content of the blog (posts)! Most blogs talk about self-absorb stuff which amazingly people find interesting. And there are some blogs that is very educational.

I like Tsem Rinpoche's blog http://blog.tsemtulku.com not just because I am Rinpoche's student, but because it has a HUGE variety of subjects from about our own organisations, anceint history, discoveries, to about funnies, entertainment, Little Britain, music, recipes and all the things I personally like, as well no doubt teachings but teaching from all different schools and views actually. Teachings that creates positive impact and improvements that rings truth and you would know if it does or does not...

So I encouraged those of you here to check it out because you may find something that you could use, or something that could possibly help or open up a karmic imprint? Or maybe just to sit back enjoy some interesting funny videos of us clowns (his students) in the "Funnies" section and laugh your heart out!!! And we also have a blogchat section which everyone is welcome to join and come chat with us... it would be nice to talk on real time http://blog.tsemtulku.com/chat :)

Hi Ankush and welcome to FreeSangha.

Thank you for providing a link to your blog --- although I've only had the time to examine a few pages so far, it appears to be well-structured and worth exploring further, especially the material within the SAT sections.

Truth be told, I had a good chuckle when I read the closing quote on SAT1: "Spiritual Awakening is like coming back home... it is quite easy and natural."

The chuckle came about because it reminded me of something that I used to tell my own students: "Spiritual Awakening is like coming back home and discovering that the furniture has been rearranged... the Feng Shui of Awakening."

Hi Dharmakara,

It's so good to connect!  I had been looking for an online forum and chat place where i can find people who love to share their meditative experiences. There are a very few sites like freesangha. Keep it up.

I feel we should have a universal family online where we can share wisdom especially related to zen.

Thank you for welcoming me to the FreeSangha community. I look forward to spending more time here and connect with other seekers.
Also, i thank you for taking the time out to read my blog.  :)

Have a wonderful day!

I've had countless blogs in the past, all deleted now - thank goodness, they weren't much good!
My current one is much less ambitious. I don't try to write about the whole of the path, just a few temples I visit along the way!

Just started my first ever blog:

http://enlightenmentforgrownups.blogspot.com

Feel free to visit and comment on my thoughts about meditation, the universe and everything.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka
