I agree. I'm a little excited for Ground though cuz by judging me obstinate it shows he's using his intuition. ��

How is saying obstinate, using his intuition?

He's using his instinctive feeling which cannot be trusted unless you are 100% certain what they are telling you.....

I've come to understand what Buddhism is saying that it is about and the more I read, the more I feel I either don't agree or am just not ready for it as a practice.
Heck I don't even mind suffering, it's a part of life as is joy and happiness and desire and attachments.

So as a last effort to try and analyze myself I ask you to analyze me for me.

Thank you in advance
The last I looked I wasn't Buddhist but if I was to judge you I hope you would judge me in the same manner and measure I use and my judgement is this. In the first part I judge you as if you're not a practising Buddhist and are searching for what does resonate with you and you shall find it. I also judge you as accepting the facts of living a life as best as you can even as far as suffering, because we know suffering also brings forgiveness or its opposition Hate, and both will build your character through experience through the choices we make which allows knowledge,wisdom and understanding to flow. Without other details these are the only judgements I could throw together in a short time. And you're welcome

Btw my judgement I made can and cannot be a righteous judgement meaning the reality of the truth might differ from what I said. That remains to be seen, remember I do not have all the information to make a righteous judgement. The one with all the relative information is the one that holds the key to making the best judgement, that could be you, in this case. Just saying.

However this forum isn't about general 'spirituality' but about buddhism.

In order to apply buddhist views and methods one has to know them and one only gets to know them if one studies authentic buddhist texts. This is not 'blindly following a dogma' but is buddhist practice which is not a general 'spiritual' indeterminate practice.
And even if one only wants to find out whether buddhism resonates with oneself there is no way other than to study authentic buddhist texts. The chatter of others is not authentic buddhism.

Thanks....again lol
I appreciate you taking the time to respond and the kindness in your words. Yeah it's not for me and my life has changed tremendously by allowing my self to admit that.
I'm at peace with it all.
Blessings
