Hello all. I am new to everything. I have studied meditation on my own without much discipline in the past from which I had achieved fairly good results. I avoided Buddhism for a long time for several reasons: One, I thought that it was going to be much more religious than it actually is, two, I was still trapped in my anger mode, and Buddha's teachings made me even more angry when I read them mostly because I was condemning myself and avoiding the truth, and three, I thought that I had achieved all that there was on my own. Now that I have started reading Wings to Awakening, I realise that I was wrong on all three accounts. Since reading Wings to Awakening, I have found a solid state of peace. I am no longer angry, frustrated, or confused. I am full of happiness. I am no longer sad or depressed. I can concentrate like never before, and most of all, I treat everyone as a friend. I no longer have enemies. I do have many questions being so new. I thank you ahead of time for your patience and kindness. I can feel your warmth already. Peace and happiness to all.

The flyingOx, no longer bound and mired in the clay.
