I'm from Singapore, middle-age, a journalist most of my life and now working as a Web content manager and editor for several public portals.
I'm actively practising Vipassana meditation at the Singapore Vipassana Mediation Centre under the guidance and instruction of our Burmese monks and teachers.
After almost 30 years as a cynical newspaper journalist reporting, commenting and expressing loud opinions on almost everything under the sun, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the only workable solutions and secrets of success have already been expounded by Lord Buddha in the Suttas.
I love to read articles and books on motivation, positive thinking and life's strategies, but again I realised -- after extensive browsing of the Suttas -- that everything expedient, practical and beneficial, can be found in the Blessed Lord's discourses.
I hope to learn from members of this forum the insights that you too have gained from studying the Holy Dhamma and from meditation practice.
Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu!
PS. I have a personal Web site for my own reading pleasure and self-development where I reproduced excerpts from Buddhist books and writings; you may like to check it out: http://frontpath.homestead.com
