For Ted
Quote:
I readily and freely grant,
He downa see a poor man want;
What's no his ain, he winna tak it;
What ance he says, he winna break it;
Ought he can lend he'll no refus't,
Till aft his guidness is abus'd;
And rascals whiles that do him wrang,
Ev'n that, he does na mind it lang;
As master, landlord, husband, father,
He does na fail his part in either.

Ted,
I wanted to say thanks, the following quote from you really struck a cord with me today, not to mention I really appreciate how precisely, timely and vigorously you answer so many posts. Cheers

"It is not so much that we try to consciously live so as to reduce our entropy. That is not something that we can really gauge here within our PMR lives. It is rather that we try to consciously live keeping the free will rights of others in our minds so that the free will of all is optimized. That is a doable goal, that we can understand and see clear and immediate feedback from. In comparison, trying to consciously reduce our entropy is an impossibility."

Ted

I always imagine Ted as a loving teacher with a stick in hand ready to put order whenever chaos arises in class :). It is the same idea as a Zen teacher striking with the stick the student who is falling asleep during meditation.

Thank you Ted for all of your hard work.

Bumping this in memory of Ted.

So sorry to hear that Ted has died and to add my appreciation of his efforts on this forum; he certainly put me right on one or two things for which I am grateful.

It was illuminating and humbling to read Tom's account of his struggles with ill health and difficult personal circumstances; his acerbity made me wince sometimes, but it always seemed at bottom that he had a good heart and I told him so once in a private message.

It's tempting to say "God speed on your journey, old chap" - but he'd probably tell me off!

Ted was always challenging. The best teachers are often the ones who challenge us the most. I count Ted as being among the best teachers I’ve had in this experience packet. I really miss his presence here, though I’m glad he’s released from the burdens he carried in this world.

I Love you Ted!

I just finished reading Tom's homage to Ted (The Passing of Ted Vollers) and greatly appreciated learning more about this extraordinary man's life history & background, of which I knew absolutely nothing. My own brief interactions with Ted only began in the last months of his physical life when he was clearly -as I now know- already suffering great health problems & discomfort. Additionally I learned that Ted, like myself, also suffered from Asperger Syndrome albeit in his case tempered by humility & a remarkably small ego whereas mine is punctuated by arrogance and a certain degree of insensitivity towards others. I wish I could have known more about Ted whilst he was still among us so as to have been able to reach out & communicate much more lovingly with him.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. My personal tribute to Ted Vollers shall consist of trying to be as selfless & compassionate a man as he so clearly was.

Ted Vollers, you rock! And yes, I am using the present tense!

Beloved Teacher Ted,

I am so sad that you are no longer with us. You meant so very much to me, since we started talking about MBT . I learned a lot through your wisdom and generosity of your time. I saw a brilliant mind, who loved Tom and MBT with all his heart.
I grieve, but I know my tears are for me. Until we meet again, you forever in my heart!

Bethany

I just learned of this! Terribly sad news but no doubt into the next stage of growth for Ted!

I will always be grateful for the help given to me, even as far as sending me information about personalities etc. Above and beyond what he needed to do for me here.

Respect!
