1. Very embarassed that my posting total is nearing Michael’s! I may start logging in under another name.
2. Embarassed to admit, will never be practicing anything on this site nor any other form of taoism! Not sure where that leaves my membership here…
3. Embarassed what I’ve written on my blog. All premature. No more posts will appear henceforward.

As for #1, Michael doesn’t post on here *that* often, so what difference does it make? It’s only a measure of how active a person is.
As for #2, again–what difference does it make? As long as a poster is ultimately
helping to create foster an environment where spiritual thought is enhanced, that’s
all that matters. Also, alternate views help “devotees” understand their beliefs better.
As for #3, I do not see any post on your blog past Oct 11. Did you take it down?
Besides, why do you feel you need to “sanitize” your own writing?
It’s all good. Just relax.

1)Posting total – sounded to me like you were honing your communication style
2)Never – that’s a very long word.
IMO, your posts are thought-provoking and deepen the discussion of what it means to be alive at this point in time, easily fitting within the charter of the forum.
3)Again, thought-provoking and deepening. You stuck your neck out on the blog Jason. Personally I think that’s a great way to quicken the pace of Learning, for yourself and others. No tension, no growth opportunity.

… but this was not for discussion but for information. jOctober 27, 2007 at 1:17 am #25333
i do not see a blog link, why are you so upset?October 27, 2007 at 5:06 am #25335
… I said I was *embarassed*, did not say that was something bad! And did not say no practice, said no *taoist* practice. jOctober 27, 2007 at 2:19 pm #25337October 27, 2007 at 3:34 pm #25339
Why do you say that you will never do any Taoist practice?
Is it because:
1. You already have an arsenal of techniques that work well, and you
don’t feel the need to add others.
2. You have tried some of the practices in the past and they didn’t
work for you.
3. There is something about the nature of the practices that
you find unappealing.
4. Some other personal reasons.
Of course, it is completely up to you whether you choose to expound
upon this question or not–and judging by your above posts, it
seems to suggest you don’t want to discuss it–which is fine, but
it should be clear that you’ve definitely peaked the interest of
some readers . . .

It won’t embarass me if you post more than me. I am happy to offer the outlet for self-expression.
Anyway, to Taoists, number qualtiy is important, not number quantity.
