    “May Allah allow those repairs to be a success.”

    But what happens to me if I don’t believe in Allah? Wait, dont tell me….

    Praying to the NHS, our “national religion”, would be far more constructive.

    I hope you make a complete and speedy recovery. I am sure everyone will miss your posts, but please take all the time you need.

  • barbara brown

    Take good care of yourself–lots of fine weather waiting for you when you are up and about again. x

  • Dreoilin

    All the best, Craig. I hope everything goes smoothly for you. And take plenty of recovery time!

  • John Goss

    Best wishes Craig. Everybody on this blog, I’m sure, wishes you successful ‘repairs’ and that your time in the ‘garage’ will not be too long.

  • fedup

    Get well repaired soon Craig, and make sure you get the warranty for the repairs!

    Best wished, and wish you luck, and health.

    All the best — good time of year to heal!
    Time to reflect:
    We began this series of talks by asking why human beings living on this earth, such a beautiful earth, except on a rainy day like this, why we cannot live at peace with each other, why must we have wars, the economic, social, racial differences, and why we cannot live with each other – intimately or otherwise, with tranquillity, a certain quality of serenity? And apparently that is not possible, because the vast majority of people throughout the world are very violent. They don’t want peace – neither do the governments. They talk a great deal about it, but they are all preparing for everlasting war. And religions too have not given man peace. The tribal divisions, local gods and saviours, the religious hierarchy, all that has prevented – or we have created all this and therefore there is no peace on earth. Pacem in terris.

    And we have been talking over together, if we can in our daily life, end conflict within ourselves, be free from any shadow of fear, end suffering, move away entirely from the self-centred activity which is one of the, perhaps, or the major causes of conflict – not only outwardly but also inwardly. And very, very few seem to be serious enough to go into this deeply and perhaps realise that there is a totally different way of living. And this morning, if we will, together, go into this question, not only of peace, but as we said, what is the origin, the beginning, of all existence? Why man has become what he is. Why we are, after millennia upon millennia, very, very primitive psychologically, barbarous. And technologically we are advanced tremendously, and that very technology is going perhaps to destroy us too. And we ought to go together this morning and enquire seriously: is it man’s lot inevitably that he lives this way? Or has something gone wrong with the whole human evolution? Or is there something outside, beyond human measure, that if one can understand, go into it deeply, may perhaps open the door, open our eyes, and perhaps our hearts too, so that we may naturally, easily, live a happy, serene life? That is what we are going to enquire together this morning.

    Please get well soon Craig. In the last resort we can always wire up your brain floating in a large glass vessel to the ethernet.

    “The whole of Australia wishes you a speedy recovery!” Martin.

    Including Ayres Rock, the Western Desert, downtown Melbourne and the Barrier Reef? Must be those cosmic good ‘Mahavishnu-Villager’ vibes! 🙂

    You were warned not to take any dodgy tea or stand next to anyone with a pointy umbrella. Criticizing Gulnara can be disastrous for one’s health.

    Don’t understand what this means as one can still post here when it is most needed as the NSA will be pulling out all the stops domestic and foreign to get Snowden no matter what it takes, as the article in today’s NYT indicates.

    The Obama administration has all the special needs it could want from its covert government to just dispose of him as if he were another Osama bin Ladin.

  • Suhayl Saadi

    Trowbridge, I think it just means that Craig will be out of action for a little time. We can still post here. I’m sure the Mods will deploy their usual Upanishad touch. Sorry, I’m in a George Harrison mood this morning.

  • rob

    Very best wishes for successful treatment and quick recovery, Craig. But I echo what others have said – make sure you give yourself plenty of rest in the aftermath, it’s really important. You will get back to full-time action more quickly if at first you do nothing for longer than you would like. Or something. Voice of experience.

  • Jon

    Yep, the commenting and discussing switch is still set to “enabled”, as far as I know! And thankfully I’ve left my umbrella (non-pointy version) on a bus. Weather’s too nice for it anyway, I’m off on the bike!

    Get well soon Craig, good health.

  • Pete

    Get well soon Craig. I don;t always agree with your conclusions but you’re a man of great integrity and knowledge, and therefore always worth attending to.

  • woodenshoe

    He dropped some great big spanners in the works and sauntered off on break.
