View Full Version : Original nature, from the Zen--some who have it (RV, 7Seas, Glo):

I admire people whose original nature shows through, whether that nature appeals to me or not. It shows honesty.

I'm gonna single out a few people here (sorry if I embarrass you!):

First off, ReeVee and Sevenseas.
Their original nature as I see it is loving and highly intelligent, tough and realistic without letting a false intellectualism overpower their compassion. Make no mistake, they'll call you on your bullsh-- in a heartbeat whether you're their friend or not: they've both done it to me several times, and I have come to value their opinions more than anyone else on this board.
I think they believe in the 'honest, not nice' principle, and therefore are very special and valuable people.

Perhaps I'm mistaken, but her's is an enigma, and part of that nature is to keep it that way. I don't know why that is, but she doesn't let it get in the way of letting the important hints shine through, if you know what to look for. But then, since she's an enigma, I'm not sure I know what to look for... :) She keeps you guessing but always brings you back to the real her, eventually, if you're patient.

I would like to comment further, but I am not confident enough that I know anyone here so well as to say forward things--I may even have gone to far with those mentioned above.
I hope not.
They are good people, and I proud to call them 'friend.'

And it's a great thing you dedicate a thread to those people! That's a nice thing to do.
