I have been really thinking. After reading all of these conversations and comments, I believe that this latest "drama" is a good thing.
Hear me out...it really is. It is constructive to "get it out" and to "just say it." This isn't just some holiday-season venting by folks. This isn't an attack of oldtimers vs new. I see it as a culmination of thoughts that've been going on for quite a long time now. A matter of "when" not "if." Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and finally, we are hearing them all. Being able to voice said opinions and learn from them is what can make a nation great, and it's what is done as a nation next that defines it.
Last year, just as I was turning one inworld I wrote this POST. Please read it as it is positive and despite it all, I still believe this to be true almost another year later.
"All created things are impermanent. Strive on with diligence." I believe these last words of Buddha apply to our lives in here as well. *smiles*
I'm done now.
