I have recently become a Buddhist, and I would like to hear opinions and thoughts on it. I'm not good at research, and I assure you, I'm not just following a craze. I had a dream that this was the path for me, and from what I've read so far, it feels right. I'd love to make friends and learn. Thank you.

Welcome friend! I hope your stay here is of use. Feel free to make topics or ask questions or contribute to discussions as you see fit!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Stuff I write about things.

Welcome Aboard!
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill
