Hey all. I just want to thank those of you that deigned to follow me. I’ve met some cool people on Tumblr and I do think I’ve learned some valuable things on Tumblr. However, Tumblr as a platform and the Tumblr ‘community’ are not the best things for communication and respectful exchange of ideas. Far too much of this space is taken up with very petty people who believe their pettiness is actually a progressive holy war.
I feel that my own spiritual path involves a lot more personal interaction with people. I’m hoping I can get involved with more volunteer work. There’s a lot of things happening in my area involving combatting homelessness and helping those in need. It’s time for me to stop talking about doing good stuff and actually do good stuff.
I stayed on Tumblr for a while because I thought I could reach a lot more people, but the internet offers a fairly shallow level of interaction between people. I feel like I can only help people in a fairly superficial way on here. If I have managed to help you in a way you feel is profound, awesome! I’m glad I was able to help. I just think that I’m reaching the limits of what I can do on here.
I’m not leaving all at once. I’ll give it a week or so for folks who would like to contact me to send me messages. If you send me your contact info (preferably e-mail), I will send you a message and we can continue to talk or discuss things.
Thanks to all of you that have listened to my stories or even just liked my re-blogged derpy cat pictures! You are all wonderful! Tumblr, though, is becoming a distraction rather than an enriching part of my life. Goodbye!
