Good Morning!

Introduce yourself to others at Dharma Wheel.

Good Morning!

Postby MattyNottwo » Fri Nov 23, 2012 5:14 pm

My name is Matt. I'm from Florida and have been a practicing Buddhist for about 4 years now and took refuge
around 3 years ago. I did a few retreats and have an everyday practice, but it's hard for me to keep up with
the local sangha. I had been aware of this forum for a long time and recently got inspired when I read of
an old Indian and Chinese practice of meditators writing letters to each other across the country about their
practice. Anyway, I look forward to discussion and friendship and I hope I can contribute in some way to the
ongoing Dharma.

Welcome Matt! I hope Dharma Wheel meets up to your high expectations! :smile:

One will not attain the real result
One will be like a blind man who has no eyes."

Hello MattyNottwo,
the Main practice one does on his own anyhow.
I wish you much success & inspiration,
Because, if our mothers, who have been kind to us
From beginningless time, are suffering,
What can we do with (just) our own happiness?

:cheers: Welcome!
The Perfect Way knows no difficulties
Except that it refuses to make preferences;
Only when freed from hate and love,
It reveals itself fully and without disguise.
