Hi! I've been lurking for a while, thought I'd finally say hello :smile:

I've been reading up on Buddhism for over a year, and trying to meditate. More recently I picked up metta, which I like. I'm not very disciplined though, and I have issues with focus (exacerbated by medical issues/medication), so my progress is painfully slow. I am hoping to visit a monastery sometime this year for a short stay and see if I can't kickstart my practice. In the mean time I'm working out of books for my instructions.

I'm grateful for this forum being here, I've learned a lot by browsing.

Hello everyone, nice to meet you all :smile:

With metta,

---Worry is the Interest, paid in advance, on a debt you may never owe---
---It's not what happens to you in life that is important ~ it's what you do with it ---

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireas na daoine.
