Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
I have recently become a Buddhist, and I would like to hear opinions and thoughts on it. I'm not good at research, and I assure you, I'm not just following a craze. I had a dream that this was the path for me, and from what I've read so far, it feels right. I'd love to make friends and learn. Thank you.

Welcome friend! I hope your stay here is of use. Feel free to make topics or ask questions or contribute to discussions as you see fit!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.
Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.
His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
Blog - Some Suttas Translated.
"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."
