Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
I am a Buddhist from a small Ohio town and joined to this forum to talk to more like minded poeple. It's unfortunate living in a small town where it seems as if you are the only Buddhist. I hope to get to know you all and engage in some interesting discussions.

Hello, LazyOne! Nice to see another Ohioan; I'm from the Cincinnati area myself.
Be well, and welcome, friend!

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
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)

Greetings Lazyone and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
If its any consolation, many of our members live in places where there are no other Buddhists.
So it is fortunate that we have Dhamma Wheel.

What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?
Rather, inquire into his knowledge of
that which is to be practised by us
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

And we will not be alive but a short hard time.
