Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
Hi, I'm a 26 year old guy on the autism spectrum finding myself drawn to Buddhism. I've felt this inclination for years and now I'm trying to learn more and become a more serious practitioner. I'm currently reading a book of discourese about the Pali Canon.

Welcome. I hope you find your involvement here of value.
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.

There is naught in this life but mist
Is ní bheimid beo ach seal beag gearr.
And we will not be alive but a short hard time.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
I hope you find the site and the Dhamma in general to be of value to you.
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)

Glad to meet you at here at this forum, I have been busy lately and neglected my sitting, only restarted sitting a week or so ago thanks to a InsightTimer app that I found for my Android phone and after a couple of days the consistency wasn't there again.
May you and all be well and fruitful
It isn't what you do or do not do that is the problem, it is what I do and do not do that is *my* problem
