I've been lurking on this forum (and its sister Dharma wheel) for quite a while, just wanted to say hello and thank you for all the wonderful discussions and information.
I have a general interest in philosophical and religious things but I gravitate most of all to Buddhist practice these days. I wasn't born Buddhist but have been interested in the Buddha and his teachings since about 13 or so and seem to have finally gotten around to consistently applying myself to them for the past few years
Happy New Year everyone!

We approach the Buddha’s teaching with our precast pigeonholes: either it has to be idealism, or it must be realism. If one really wants to call this an ‘ism’, they should be calling it ‘let-go-ism’. One picks up only to make use of and let go.
