Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
I'm a Theravadin Buddhist of approximately 3 years and most well known on the Internet to people through my participation at E-Sangha where I used to be a Global Moderator. I've also spent some time too amongst the rough and tumble of BuddhaChat.
I think this site has great potential so I would encourage people to invite all their Dhamma friends along to discuss the Dhamma.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

I'm just following my leader.....!

Translation: Just to stir things up seemed a good reward in itself. I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! http://www.armchairadvice.co.uk/relationships/forum/

Yes, thank you Paul. And Happy New Year to you and your family.
"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
