Motorcycling Dilemma

Postby tomyoung92401 » Wed Dec 02, 2009 9:55 pm

I'm an avid biker but I am also very spiritual. Sometimes I feel the two clash because the biker community makes me feel like an outsider looking in. Can anyone offer any advice how I can reduce the stress within my hobby circle without compromising my spirituality?

How do you mean 'reduce stress'?

Your personal stress or stresses within the group?

I ride solo and don't stop often.
I am of nature to decay, I have not gone beyond decay.
I am of the nature to be diseased, I have not gone beyond disease.
I am of the nature to die, I have not done beyond death.
All that is mine, dear and delightful, will change and vanish.
I am the owner of my kamma, heir to my kamma, born of my kamma, related to
my kamma, abide supported by my kamma. Whatever kamma I shall do,
whether good or evil, of that I shall be the heir.
Thus we should frequently recollect.
- Upajjhatthana Sutta, Anguttara Nikaya v.57
