Hello everyone.

My name is Nima, im Persian. im a 24 year old man. Im an artist and a designer.

I have always had respect for Buddhist teachings since childhood.
I am not worthy of calling myself a Buddhist; for many reasons, one is my lack of proper knowledge in the teachings
and another is the main reason that im here. Im in search of a pure soul, and at the moment it is not close to that.

I want a mentor. Someone to guide me, teach me, and help me heal. battle my inner impurities and feel worthy of being a human.

Welcome Nima!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

GReetings Nima and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
