Sociopathology 101

It took reactivating my Facebook account again to make me realize why Facebook is not for me...

I'm anti-social.

And I'm allowed to be, I'm a Buddhist monk. That's my job.

It finally dawned on me that the reason I never really "got" Facebook is that Facebook is the opposite of monk. Even a geek monk. I can teach on-line, even answer questions via YouTube, but socialize? Ewww.

At least I got a smile out of my second Facebook account deactivation, and I hope you will too. Here's the screenshot of the day:



Sorry guys, I'll miss y... no, actually, I won't :)

"He who sits alone, sleeps alone, and walks alone, who is strenuous and subdues himself alone, will find delight in the solitude of the forest."

The Buddha (Dhp. 305)
