Hello DW forum

Post by JoaoRodrigues » Sun Feb 23, 2020 6:03 pm

I'm 25-years-old, live in a small northern village of Portugal, have a normal 8-hours job that I'm grateful for doing.

When not working I try to restore myself physically and mentally, share time and thoughts with my mother who I live with.

Virtual realities, consumerism, pleasure seeking, revolutionary ideals distracted me from not asking questions.

Art, nihilism, introspection, seeking isolation made me find questions to ask. Trying to find answers...

Thank you for reading, hope to keep it simple, enjoyable and interesting.

João Rodrigues

Well, thank you, obrigado.

I've been looking in the forum and most of the content is complex, most of which I don't have a single clue about it's meaning.

Most of my understanding of zen in particular is from the philosopher Alan Watts, I'm not sure how he is regarded in here.

I find easier for me to be engaged in something when there's a sense of community, dialogue, questions and different answers.
