I have been a member here for a while, but have just recently decided to start debating. About myself:

I am an agnostic who seeks spiritual enlightenment within himself. I enjoy peace, harmony, classical music, ballet and love. I hope that this is not too personal, but my spiritual journy has brought me from a very different place; I used to have anger problems, but me and my sponser worked all that out. I am slow to anger and enjoy thoughtful dialogue with my fellow homo sapiens. There are times when I might occasionally lose my temper but I try to control this with deep breathing and building bird houses. Won't you join me in the harmonious act of debate?

I'm in an angry mood today. I'm not going to welcome you. There are too many people who sign up, introduce themselves and then disappear. I'm tired of wasting my breath.

Amazing to find a man who likes ballet. - j/k - don't mind me. I think I like you because you left yourself open for a roast on your very first post.

Welcome!


You should join the Nandy for World Domination Clan, where our slogan is "Love is Love" (potential slogan at least). That's deep man...and peaceful. :)

Welcome to ODN

Thank you my friend. I hope that we may engage in a wonderous debate at some point during my tenure.

I am disheartened that you would choose to "introduce" me in this manner. But I understand where you are coming from as I once was angry myself. To aid in ridding yourself of anger, I suggest the following steps:

1: Share your anger with friends or a loved one
2: Visualize your anger. This was the advice my sponser gave me - she told me to visualize "putting out" my anger as someone would "put out" a fire, but I prefer to visualize strangling my anger, it provides me with some release.
3: Bottle your anger - most counselors don't recommend this and neither did mine, but I haven't had 1 (major) anger outburst since I started doing this - it really works. Anger is like nicotine, the more you have the more addicting it will become, so bottling it up ensures that you will never be exposed to (major) anger.


Welcome!

"Love is Love" - I actually like that, it is very profound...I'm sort of a lone ranger, but may consider joining this "clan". Thanks for the welcome!

You're a hippy or something.


but my spiritual journy has brought me from a very different place

Either that or you are just trying to get a laugh out of us.

Well then, welcome my hippy friend.
