    Walkabout

    Hi again all. I've been out for a while and just thought I'd let everyone know I'm back. Or at lest I'll try to be on the forums more. Even though I never really left: no matter where we go we are always home

    I will do my best Taigu. I went looking for answers to questions that were bothering me. I thought that there was more to this whole thing somewhere and like Shakyamuni I wandered for a time. And like Shakyamuni I ended up just sitting. I read Paracelcus. Plato. Iamblicus. Porphyry. And dozen other Greeks and Romans and Egyptian priests and philosophers. In the end i heard the Buddhas speak with their words. Do that which is good, do not do that which is evil thus all Buddhas have taught.
