I'm gonna introduce myself. My name is Gerard, I'm 21 and I live in Barcelona, Spain.
I 'discovered' buddhism recently and I've found on it the philosophy I've been maturing during my life. I used to be confused about life, specially about human's behavior towards it and I couldn't stop thinking "Why does people act like this? What's on their mind?". I didn't know anything about buddhism, in my eyes it was just another religion and my knowledge about it was null. Suddendly I learned about meditation and started practicing it and when I achieved my true-self I saw the truth on the distance, as a secret goal waiting to be accomplished. I wanted to find out more about meditation and it's how I found buddhism.
While I was reading Buddha's life everything sounded so familiar, so obvious and close to myself. It's really important to me because my whole life I've been skeptical about spirituality, now I feel I've found what was missing on me.
I hope I can learn as much as possible from all of you, there's still a long path of learning.
