Dear Mayka,

How are you? I am concerned. Are you are seeking outward and not inward? Are you expecting from or being dependent on TNH?

Are you being turned by situation (form)?

Concerned,
JM

This is a real Teacher:

You won't ever see any good teacher of any subject absented from the classroom. Watch the five documentary video and you'll understand the point I'm trying to make here. When you reach to the last video you'll be seeing that Teacher leaves the children only when they have already learnt. He doesn't leave the classroom in the hands of the children. First he educates them and stay with them supervising...

    see him more a kind of pleasant show to be watched and
    listened rather than a real Teacher. /

        Mayka,
        I am very glad you came back. As regards the difference you
        talk about between Christianity and Buddhism, I agree to some
        extent. The former is more emotional, more intending to help,
        while the latter is trying to do away with emotions, which
        they think are harmful. Nevertheless, I think it is too
        premature for you to give up on TNH, who is a wonderful
        personality.
        Anthony

            /Hi Mike, Anthony... and all of you.  How very kind of you
            both to ask for me.  Not often this happens to me in
            groups.  Hardly ever anyone miss me!. .  I've been away in
            Spain most of July.  I have some access to internet but
            not much and when I did this mail used mainly in
            groups wasn't available. Besides I wasn't feeling much
            talkative.  I had to renounce to the TNH retreat in the UK
            because  I have some special needs and can travel alone
            right now...The hardest part here was to finding out once
            again that the only benefit I get from my sangha is the
            sitting down together and that once that is finished is
            better to thanks for the sitting in company and walk away
            from them as far as possible.    By the way and whatever
            you all say, the Christian Communities do care a lot of
            more for the vulnerable but the new western buddhist and
            alike, don't give a dam!.  They may be all in maxim red
            alert urgent need of oxygeno for themselves!./

                Mike,
                Zen is everyday life, so it is a project, a hobby and
                everything you can think about.
                Yes, I miss Mayka too.
                Anthony

                    Mayka,
                    I haven't been posting recently (most of the
                    topics are a bit too naff for me - makes Zen sound
                    like a hobby or some kind of a project). Anyway,
                    haven't seen you post for a while and I know you
                    have health issues in your family. Everything ok?
                    Mike
