you would like to write to ask questions of a general nature about
the articles on this site, meditation, etc., you are most welcome to do so.
However, please take the time to write your question in a way that it is brief
and clearly stated. Please think of how you might like to receive
questions yourself, and remember that it can be extremely difficult to respond to lengthy,
vaguely worded questions. Also, please keep in mind that a question of a few sentences can
be quite difficult to respond to in an equally few sentences. Because of
the response you receive might be
much more brief than you had hoped for. I say this with great compassion
for those who are sincerely searching.
While I have great
compassion for people seeking advice, please make any
questions general in nature, rather than focusing on specific advice
about what you personally should do in your meditations, life
situations, or health issues. Most questions about ones
personal life and practice have traditionally been discussed in
face-to-face dialogue with ones own teacher or mentor. While I empathize
with those seeking to find their way in life and spiritual practices, I
don't see it as realistic to establish
student-teacher relationships via internet. Some others may do this, but
I do not personally find this to be a good idea. Straightforward questions of a
general informational nature can be responded to by email, but I refrain
from giving direct personal instructions through the medium of internet.
The relationship between a
student and a teacher or mentor is a very personal one. I sincerely hope you glean much personally useful
information from the articles on this website, but they are not meant to
replace such personal contact. I wish for you to find the teacher who is
just right for you. Ultimately, the goal of even the external teacher is to lead the student
to find the teacher within. May you find that teacher.

where you might have a different opinion. While I respect the right of
all people to have divergent opinions, if
you are writing a private email solely to voice your disagreement about some principle on the
website, please be aware that such emails are usually not
you are writing to let me know about typographical or grammatical errors
on the website, or broken links, that is most appreciated.
Sometimes the email
box gets pretty full and it might take several days, or possibly weeks to respond.
