Greetings

Post by spiritual555 » Wed Jul 12, 2017 10:46 pm

Hello,

My name is Jorden and I shall tell somethings about myself briefly (buddhist things :P); and then, if you can find it by searching my screen name, please have a look at a post i'm about to... post... about some questions if you have the time and spirit, I would be very appreciative. I'll name it "Wondering".

Thus far, I have been meditating on average 1hr a day, according to ‘insight timer’. I am studying Theravada Buddhism at this moment in time (a new University of Toronto course piece of a whole Buddhism Program – blessed to have found this ) which means I ALSO spend a lot of time reading (so far, we have covered Dependent Origination 12 links, 4 noble truths, 3 insights, 3 craving types, 2 existential problems etc.… in SOME detail). Also, when I was younger, I FELT like (around 18 years old), after 'STOPPING' at times in day to day life, that inherently some buddhist practice had surfaced. Has anyone else felt like this? Note: I have never been introduced to buddhism by that time!

Have a great day,

Jorden

p.s. I have attached some images of the books I have been reading since the course started a month and a half ago (and ends in a month). Have a look if it interests you.
