Just would like to say

Postby Still Searching » Sun Sep 15, 2013 1:34 am

Thank you all very much for the love and support throughout this difficult time.

I do not want to take over the forums nor be center of attention but I really do wish to thank you all for not giving up on me. It brings tears to my eyes, I really did felt no hope but with your kind words and support, I know now I am never alone.

As mentioned in my new introduction, I have had many disappointments, I lost my home, I lost someone very dear to me and living in a rough town surrounded by anger, hatred, lust and greed, it brings negative energy around me and therefore I suffer.

I'm still practicing the 5 precepts and trying to remember the four noble truths. As my username reads, I am "Still Searching".

I'm glad that you are with us. :group:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
