Greetings,

I have been enlightened,

Not so arrogant to say that I have found Nirvana, but, I am working towards it with every inch of my soul. Religious confusion and fear have been surpassed, and I am here to offer the good word of love. Bless you all, and bless my soul, because I am completely new and in the making. I would like to introduce myself by saying that my personal spiritual journey began when I found enlightenment while playing Bach music on the piano. 4 years later, here I am, seeking the same enlightenment.

Greetings, JourneyYourMind, and welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :)

I'm also a pianist, and while I can't claim that Bach's keyboard music actually enlightened me, it certainly has helped to calm & uplift my mind on occassion. Plus it can be alot of good, clean fun.

Hello JYM,

Welcome! :group: Look forward to reading your posts.

You may find some benefit in studying the Buddhas' teachings on Anatta (No soul, No self).
