Namaste

Postby Honora » Wed May 09, 2012 12:25 am

I'm an unaffiliated, independent western Buddhist. I am without sangha and without teacher which used to bother me a great deal but doesn't any more. I take what I need and leave the rest from all the traditions. I am also a great skeptic and very much appreciate that tendency in the Buddha himself. I have a deep and abiding commitment to the path and love and gratitude to the many teachers I have experienced only through their books and in large public addresses. I don't have particularly lofty spiritual goals. I'm not shooting for enlightenment. I am very attracted to "Don't Know Mind". But, mostly, I want to become more kind, that's all.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

You don't sound confused to me. You said you just want to be more kind- Buddha said it, John Lennon said it, Jesus said it, HH Dalai Lama said it- "All you need is love." You're home free, dude. Be as kind as you can, and enjoy. :namaste:
