Hello from Philadelphia PA

Postby Mountain Dweller » Wed Apr 24, 2013 4:56 pm

Hello Everyone.
I am Jack from Phili PA, raised catholic in a totally catholic community. My two best friends are Austrian Atheists who live in my neighborhood. My ancestors are Norwegian, Danish, German, and Norse Irish... pretty Germanic if i do say so myself. :twothumbsup: :cheers: I love to write, draw, play music, do sports.

I fell away from catholicism about three years ago, after studying it thuroughly and deciding that it didnt make sense. And now here i am at Dharmawheel.net! I started looking at buddhism last year and i loved what it had to say. The buddha just had so much wisdom for me and all of us, and that is why i am here. I have read a few books from shabhala publications but am still very new to it. Hopefully i will get some questions answered here. :)

I look forward to meeting all of you on the forum and frequently posting here.

Welcome to Dharma Wheel Jack!

Ask away and we will try our best to answer!

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