Hi. Nice place you have here.

I've been reading here off and on for a couple of months and finally decided to join. There's a lot of good stuff on this board and I hope I can contribute something worthwhile, or at the very least quote someone who knows what they're talking about.

Eseward and I have known each other for years and have had many Vernon Howard related discussions, so I'll apologize in advance for any strangeness we might cause in that department. :D He once told me about a newly released book called The Power of Now, and used to quote lots of good stuff by a guy named Smothermon. Since then, I've also read teachings by Burt Harding, Byron Katie (The Work), and David Deida, and incorporated them into my practice. Hopefully this list will help you all understand where I'm coming from and who I'm quoting and such.

Ok, I think that's a good enough introduction for now. :D

Good to see you here, sparks. You are a dear friend. So how's the wife doing? :)

Thanks for the welcome. I've been reading so many other threads that I forgot about this one until I got an email today.

Hey E., I didn't see you post for a few days and thought maybe that monster sized dog of yours finally chewed through the PC cables. Glad to see you're still online.

The wife's doing good...as Vernon Howard says:
"There are 5 ways to understand a woman, but no one knows what they are."

I've learned to take the flying cookware as a sign that I'm wrong about something...you know, usual marriage stuff. :mrgreen:

This is a nice place and the folks who administer and moderate are doing a great job. :D

Now let's see how long it takes for our wonderful moderators to say something nice about our wonderful site-admin. :wink:

Okay I win,

Our admin is responsible for the existance of this forum. Without his forsight and effort in creating this site, this opportunity to explore one's essence with those of simialar interests would not exist.

Many of us, at this early stage in world wide awakening consciousness, know few, if any, in our local groups willing to explore the nature of being. This site makes that exploration and exchange possible.

Thanks Erict

I gladly let you win, Webwanderer (my spiritual brother).

This site has become a favorite of mine on all of the internet; thanks for creating it erict, and thanks to heidi for all her efforts as well. It has been a pleasure working with all of you, and it's a privilege having so many caring members who are gaining something from its existence. Without you this place wouldn't grow as it has.

Thanks Kiki, I couldn't ask for a better family than you, and the many other fine participants of this forum. When I come here it feels like home. :)

Okay, since we're on a mutual admiration flow here, I'll first welcome Sparks - Welcome! - (and we love eseward) and add my appreciation for all the goodness happening here, and especially all of the fine moderation attention and wise words of WW and Kiki lately, and bow to Eric's service to this fab forum. :)
Namaste!
