Greetings,

I have been enlightened,

Not so arrogant to say that I have found Nirvana, but, I am working towards it with every inch of my soul. Religious confusion and fear have been surpassed, and I am here to offer the good word of love. Bless you all, and bless my soul, because I am completely new and in the making. I would like to introduce myself by saying that my personal spiritual journey began when I found enlightenment while playing Bach music on the piano. 4 years later, here I am, seeking the same enlightenment.

Greetings, JourneyYourMind, and welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :)

I'm also a pianist, and while I can't claim that Bach's keyboard music actually enlightened me, it certainly has helped to calm & uplift my mind on occassion. Plus it can be alot of good, clean fun.

perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

Hello JYM,

Welcome! :group: Look forward to reading your posts.

You may find some benefit in studying the Buddhas' teachings on Anatta (No soul, No self).

With metta
