Hello from St. Louis

Postby seekingpeace » Tue Jan 07, 2014 11:41 pm

I have recently decided to take refuge. as someone who comes from a Catholic family/friend group (extended and immediate) I have been tentative about answering the pull of buddhism, but I feel in my heart that this is the place for me. I am unsure of my steps in the right (or wrong!) direction, but I am discovering more every day.

The first of the four noble truths saved my life. I hope to find friends here and be a friend to all, as well.

now here is a jedi, because I love star wars :jedi:

When there is no one to provoke anger, how shall we practice patience?

Hello and welcome. :hi:
We follow a spiritual path because we want to defeat our emotions and attain enlightenment, and to achieve that goal we need discipline, guidance and the courage to confront everything we have spent many lifetimes trying to avoid.
~Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche
