Howdy Howdy Howdy
« on: September 14, 2015, 03:28:26 pm »
Hello everybody, I'm the Dude. You can call me "His Dudeness" or "El Duderino" if you're not into the whole brevity thing. Anyways, I'm a commercial truck driver from Atlanta, currently sweating it out in Loveland, Colorado. I was raised Southern Baptist, but it didn't suck and I was angry and resentful of religion for a long time. A couple of months ago I started reading about Buddhism. I appreciated its virtues of kindness, charity, and simplicity. I couldn't stop thinking about what I've read. About a week and a half ago I decided to try meditation after reading Sunryu Suzuki's "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind". In just a short time I've noticed that my mood has been a lot better, I'm more focused, and fare I say it, I'm happier. Been reading whenever I got down time and I'm looking forward to going to the local Soto Zen center in Atlanta when I go home in a couple of weeks. Until then, I figured I'd give this message board a try. Look forward to discussing not just Buddhism,but many things with y'all.


P.S. if my username and introduction didn't give it away, my all time favorite movie is The Big Lebowski
Witness Me!!
