good morning :)
« on: November 26, 2015, 07:39:35 am »
Hi I'm lainey. I have been looking at the forums and I'm so excited and impressed to find such a nice community! I have been practicing meditation since I was a teenager but I didn't start thinking about Buddhist teachings until maybe ten years ago when I started to listen to talks from people like Jack Kornfield and Pema Chodron. I am 44 now. My whole practice is lonely because I listen to Dharma talk podcasts and meditate every day and think about what I'm learning all the time but I don't talk to people about it or participate in any community here. The reason I don't talk to people about it is that if I'm trying to practice wise speech, I don't see a lot of opportunities in my relationships where it's going to be very helpful to bring it up. The reason I don't participate in a community is that I don't know of one. So it will be nice to get to know you if I can :)

Greetings.
I'm glad to have found an online source for the Sangha.
I am called Morisila online, and have been interested in Buddhism for over ten years. I've been reading, meditating, and learning as I grow. There is a group within my area, though I have yet to garner the discipline to get up and attend their meetings. Lo and behold the internet has helped me find a place to suit my schedule, and possibly help me find the motivation I need to attend the meetings. Thanks to all participants to make this source available to all who need it.
