I have decided that a weekly commitment is something I can manage in 2009. Not books or pictures, though. I don’t know that anyone but Rhi is interested in this, but I am, this year, making a concerted effort to be more spiritual and I have decided that that is what I’ll share here every week. Of course far be it from me to be too personal, so it won’t be my experiences, rather it’ll be whatever I’m working that week, so it may be selections from the Dhammapada, from Buddhist parables, from whatever book I am reading, etc.
This isn’t intended to influence anyone in their own beliefs. Rather a way for my community to hold me accountable for continuing to practice, and hopefully to entertain you all. And maybe inform you, if it is something you are interested in following up on. Buddhism is something that can be practiced in conjunction with Christian and other faiths. It is, in it’s simplest form, just a means of achieving inner peace and having selfless compassion for your fellow humans.
And sure, if you do read these posts and are interested I will try and answer questions, or at least direct you to possible answers. I am merely a student in this and have not at all been practicing in the way I wish for a few years. So bear with me, or learn with me.
