Hello

Post by Vredstein » Wed Sep 09, 2015 9:46 pm

My name is Jesse. I'll make an effort to recognize the dangers involved in internet forums and avoid having my participation become a cause for suffering. I'm quite intimidated by the enormity of the task involved in reaching enlightenment. I'll appreciate any support in remaining mindful of what can be done presently to at least make progress.
