Another "Moin"

Postby acinteyyo » Mon Jun 01, 2009 11:24 am

Moin,

so what can I say... My name is Florian. I'm 23 years old and I live in Neuburg/Germany.
I'm able to read and understand english quite well, but my writing experience, especially with respect to these particular buddhism topics, is rather nothing. So I guess the terminology needed for efficient conversation or discussion does not really exist at the moment.
However I'm going to read the topics and I think thereby I'll learn enough sophisticated vocab so that we could have some helpful conversation some day.
Since I read a book about the 4 noble truths, I decided to read up on it. Well so I came to buddhism - especially to Theravada.
So far so good...kind regards

Moin,Moin Florian. :smile:

I know you by name from another (german) forum. Nice to meet you here. :namaste:

To my introduction:
I come from (not so far) nothern germany and I'm aged 46 years. My first contact with buddhism was about 1996. After some years of searching and learning the teachings of the different schools I returned back to the pure teachings of the Buddha. I'm also influenced by the Thai Forest Tradition and the writings of Nanavira Thera.

With best wishes

I thought about it, too. But I'll stay for a while and watch how the things will develop.

Yes, the things will change over and over again. That's what the Buddha taught. :namaste:

Do you mean "Buddhaland"?

I left the forum about a half year ago... there were too many smart-alecks :thinking:

Hi all,

I don't know where to put this so I put it here. The circumstances changed. My girlfriend and I have a serious relationship for about 8 years now. We've had our ups and donws and we both are relativly young. We decided to make one's career first so that we won't regret that we haven't done everything in the past for a good job 'cause we thought later it could be to late and a good job, well paied will be very helpfull for a young family and so on... Well, that's live, a lot of supposing how the future might be. The last 2 or 3 years we noticed slightly that we're drifting apart. Because of the work we've seen each other very unfrequently, about 1 or 2 days a week sometimes less. I never was someone who had lots of friends and my family is spread (don't know if that is the right word). Some live in Spain, some in Switzerland, some elsewhere all over germany. I never was very interested in social contacts. My girlfriend was most of the time the only person and reason why I did all the wordly things. (I never really knew why I should live a life how the others told me how life has to be lived)
So I too wanted to have a family, house, children and all that stuff when I was younger, but now the only thing I see in things like that is dukkha. Earlier I wasn't interested in things like that but after school (and when I met my girlfriend) I thought this is going to make me really happy, this is going to be satisfying. I always doubt it. Today I'm sure that won't be satisfying. Or better that is all dukkha and will never decrease but rather becoming more and more. We're not ready to break up now but it's not a question "whether ... or not" but "when". I noticed that my interest in this world of dukkha decreases more and more. I think I'm going to manage this circumstances and reduce my "involvement" concerning the wordly life which my girlfriend and I are living at the moment. We're still very good friends. All I see day after day is: "there is the normal life and you know that it's impossible to live it without dukkha. do you want to keep on living like that?" - Guess what's my answer? - I'm tired of it!
I need to let these things go till there is nothing (especially no-one) left so that all the dukkhá looses its footing.

Greetings acinteyyo,

My advice would be, in those circumstances, to ensure you steer clear of anything which could complicate any future interest in the monastic life such as engagement, marriage, children, combined purchases/investments of a significant scale.

Metta,
Retro. :)
