Do we need a friend in life?

Hi,

I have no friend. And I sometimes feel like it's bad. Is it healthy to have no friend in life?

Thanks.

What is greed (lobha)?

Hi,

Is wanting to earn wealth so to become financially stable greedy? (trying to accumulate large enough amount of money so not have to worry about earning ever again in life), is this being greedy/lobha? Is this unwholesome?

Thanks.

Re: Can I get 3 months break?

Why not focus on losing desire, not at least to make the topic worthy not to be required to send down to wellness, good householder, and why just for a break? If up to repeat offence, why burden around with a break of that what is desired? Yes, removing desire is what I will surely work on. But rig...

Re: Bored and tired and frustated with where I'm.

It depends on your ultimate goal. If your ultimate goal is to attain the final Nibbana, then you should become a monk. You are already 30 so just decide now. Do not wait to lose weight. It appears you do not have self-discipline. If you do not have self-discipline now how can you become a monk or e...

Bored and tired and frustated with where I'm.

Hi, I'm 30 years old already and I still live with my parents. My mom, my dad, my bro and my sis. I don't like living with any of them. I want to live in my own apartment room or condo. My bro is good, my dad kind of ok, my mom is better, but I don't like my sis. Overall, I don't want to live with t...

Practice a lot of diligent anapanasati. Let go of the craving feelings, they are not you. Eat healthy food. Exercise.
Thank you, I will try again (and again and again and again).

I need advice regarding how to control mind. How to control mind so that I don't eat.
