Hello From What's Left of Me!

This recepticle is called Patrick. It is mostly empty now... which is a good thing. The old contents - garbage really - used to spill over into other recepticles and cause lots of problems. Oi vey!

One day I listened to a CD called "The Power of Now". I learned that I was NOT the recepticle! In fact, I could see that the recepticle and all it contained was a figment of my imagination. Then everything went kinda crazy... but in a good way.

The recepticle still tries to re-own me but I am aware of its wiley ways... well, mostly. I just keep watching it and sometimes come across more things/trash I don't need. Those are recycled into more emptiness. I suppose you could call it "enlightened dumpster diving".

So, from what's left of the recepticle called Patrick, hello! May you find nothing where you least expect it.

Hi Patrick!

It's nice to have you here. I guess as someone who has undergone such a deep transformation there is a lot you can share with us. I bet many of the forum's visitors would like to hear more about your story. I know I do.

My name is Eric by the way, and I'm 20 years old - well, 21 real soon :) - and I've created this place together with Heidi. I don't know about Heidi, but I didn't really expect that it would turn out to be such a wonderful place, that it would attract such great people, who would come together to help and inspire each other as they have.

Anyway, welcome, and please do share more if you don't mind. I gotta go now. See you around.

That sounds like a great koan, Patrick

Well, where to start? Tell us a little about your history :) and how the transformation came to be, and what changed in your life, and inside of you. I don't know. Just tell us your story :D
