Looking for direction and found inspiration reading on the net so thought I would investigate further. I have many questions and hope for opinions to guide my thinking. Looking forward to learning and growing.

Hi BJR and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

I really am very new to Buddhism and i am a blank sheet of paper so to speak. The thought of feeling compassion toward enemies whilst they attack intrigues me. Which part of the forum would it be most appropriate to post a thread to discuss this?

Welcome BJR!

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
