It would be good to have a spoiler and member mention
« on: August 10, 2017, 01:09:22 am »
It would be good if the forum would provide a spoiler, something like this, to train distinction of off-topic while possible make it more comfortable for others, yet not limiting by cutting of mental outflows which can not kept back and are of cource means of desired sozialicing. Perfect means for those liking to train generosity and mindfulness online.

And it would be good to have member-mention. This one works normally fine. It woul better the approaching of each other and make sub-communication via PM not so nessesary. At least it would possible give the change to let know if the talk is about ones person so he/she is able to correct and there is properple lesser talk behind which might be also conductive for the community.

Just suggestion and if not having certain strange things within, quick installed (don't forget the giver, provider of it)

Its a good suggestion and I would thereby be able to hide large chunks of my text a little better, which people can then click if they wish to read more.

Would be good, how ever, giving alternatives and ways requires generousity and this the wisdom that it benefits both, others and oneself, having given.

Moderators, if feeling that invention is needed, would just need to put the disturbing test under this spoiler, naming it "moderated off-topic". No killing, deliting, censuring, unskillful deeds nesesary, transparency and space to act for those feeling need to act. A user can use it perfect as mindfulness training, while letting him certain joy in expressing meta further.

Quote
The Blessed One then spoke as follows:

"These ten essentials must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth (to live the holy life). What are these ten?

1. "'I am now changed into a different mode of life (from that of a layman).' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

2. "'My life depends on others.' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

3. "'I must now behave in a different manner.' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

4. "'Does my mind upbraid me regarding the state of my virtue?' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

5. "'Do my discerning fellow-monks having tested me, reproach me regarding the state of my virtue?' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

6. "'There will be a parting (some day) from all those who are dear and loving to me. Death brings this separation to me.' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

7. "'Of kamma I am constituted. Kamma is my inheritance; kamma is the matrix; kamma is my kinsman; kamma is my refuge. Whatever kamma I perform, be it good or bad, to that I shall be heir.' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

8. "'How do I spend my nights and days?' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

9. "'Do I take delight in solitude?' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

10. "'Have I gained superhuman faculties? Have I gained that higher wisdom so that when I am questioned (on this point) by fellow-monks at the last moment (when death is approaching) I will have no occasion to be depressed and downcast?' This must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

Yes, that's a good sample, for exact such metas. Seem's Element understood and shows practical. Well, one could thinks so, that this was the reason for contibution..

Sure one get a lot of merits with defending ones greedy nature or rather to look what could I do suppotive, do cite what was given out of generosity for what pupose? To have no spoiler for those loving to be on meta.

And to the underlying reproach, yes it would be not proper to wish or demand such for ones benefit or comfort, that would be right, but in regard of giving Element his needed space to express his doubts and aversion, without destroying the focus of certain topics with it, and train some mindfulness by deviding personal issuse with on top, it can be not easy seen as a demand, rather a gift, like you do good to pull your trousers up or to tell about braces benefit, like in giving to know what is of benefit, what a useful training support. No all think like one self and possible selfcentered when open the moth. There is a saying in Austria: "The rogue ways of thinking is like he is" or "Honi soit qui mal y pense."

Actually a reproach "you do householders a favor", would be more accurate,it it would be for their wordily gains and support, which they then could feel obligated to, and to maintains ones livelihood with such. If, yes.


* Samana Johann was adding some off-topic, mark if desire for read. You can use the quick tap "/me" or "[me=...]off-topic-text[/me]" to have text appearing like that red one here. With the quick-tap usename will be added automatically. If making some changes in css file, could be a more proper layout as well, and fast done.

Off cause there are many ways how you can organize you individual googlyana-practice of mindfulness, 1.   Frist Traininglevel „Off-Topic - On-Topic“

Aside of the hover-bbc code [abbr="hover-text"]visible Info[/abbr], you may find also other ways here: https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Alphabetical_list_of_all_bulletin_board_codes

Note that the board here does not support all of the possibilities. And, on cause, be clear that various kinds of ways you try to make you practice join-able for others, might cause certain confusions for others. Some might even get angry or feel insulted if you try to be very attentive.

So it can be very quick a real hard-core Zen forum, which is maybe not bear-able for many. So it can be very quick a real hard-core Zen forum, which is maybe not bear-able for many, or attracts alikes. So it can be very quick a real hard-core Zen forum, which is maybe not bear-able for many.
And"," off course"," will possible used to make "fun" with other. Beware that not all will laught about things, and if in such a way, with unwholesome intention, without understandig others situation made, that kamma will come "back" to you. You would like to be a fun-object for others as well. So do it in any way serious and conscious for your own protection and welfare. Even if nobody intentional has such done, you might feel insulted all the time. That's the fruit of previous action. That also counts for cases where others might try to hurt you, put even if it looks alike, you are not touched at all. So things are not always like they would be perceived, even if many do so.

On right cause, people would possible impressed how attentive and on topic "Buddhists" discuss and how they life easily sticking to their well thought rituals and form of practice.

They might find ways to start to integrate themselves, without being pressured to totally giving up their usual ways.

Its a good suggestion and I would thereby be able to hide large chunks of my text a little better, which people can then click if they wish to read more.


That's why it is good to inform others a little of your ways and deeper reasons of suggestions. It's not good to demant that everybody will suddenly understand your suggestion, how good it ever might be. Simply try to give samples and be patient, endure hard critic and all kinds of critic. You skillful intentions will bear fruits, it's just not sure where and when. Something you need to trust and believe in for now.

At least you have always the possibility to search for a proper topic: how ever, it would finally not secure that other see insults or feeling scared if you try to be very observant and: there is no way to help others at least. So it's your training, with the tools you are given.

(Oh, my person has no idea for now how to make the mention thing work, so that you could call to another place to work on off-topic on topic.)

Off-Topic: hover if you like
