Noob from MD

Postby Bobbo » Sat Oct 27, 2012 1:26 pm

Hi all -

Been just following along on a number of threads for some time and decided to finally register. I'm a commuter into DC most days and travel the world a lot. Enjoy reading early religious history (geek alert), am an avid follower of Thich Nhat Hahn, and when possible making it to Tara Brach's Wednesday evening meditations.

The forum name is a childhood knickname, Bobbo The Clown, partially because most regard what I do for a living as anything but.
It's kind of a needing mud to grow a beautiful lotus sort of balance thought.

As a former Glen Burnie resident, I would like to welcome you! :)
Maryland seems to have a lot of options.
I hope you find what you're looking for.

Welcome Bobbo!

Meditation and conduct become delusion,
One will not attain the real result
One will be like a blind man who has no eyes."

Welcome from New York, US.

Hi, fellow Marylander! I'm a noob here, too.

Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.
