Quick Question

So lately I've been feeling a little lost or just reluctant to live within the walls of this society.

Paying for things with money, having to work shit jobs, dealing with things that I don't think people even need, yet people insist that this lifestyle is "all that". I don't even want that many things in life. I just want some food, and a warm place to lay my head.

So going on this, I've been thinking of becoming a Buddhist Monk. Only problem is I have no Idea were I can find a live in monastery.

I've google'd the hell out of this, and all I can find is that I'd have to move to some eastern country and learn some random language just to be Buddhist. Which is BS cause that is not Buddhism.

So I was wondering if any of the Enlightened Pit Mongrels have any ideas as to what I can do?

Are there any temples where you live?

Am I crazy?

Should I keep asking questions?

What is your whole opinion on this matter? Is this a good Idea?

Do whatever you want. However, I really couldn't help you with this one.

You're crazy. It's probably just a phase.

See that's what I'm thinking. Although the feeling has only ever grown.

Maybe it's the drugs talking

I don't know what you should do. What I do know is that knowledge isn't bound to it's language. You'll find buddhist temples that would accept you even if you don't speak Tibetan. Hell, that's the whole point of Tibetan buddhism: spiritual enlightenment, unbound by the bodies limitations.

Yes actually, there's a buddhist temple about a 10 minute bike ride away from where I live.

Not if nobody criticises your vigor.

There are never enough questions. The answer is the limit, but then the question is whether the answer is correct.

The only one that can judge your path is you. Nobody matters until your path crosses theirs. So until then, do that what you feel would be best for yourself, without hurting others ofcourse, and whenever you reach a dilemma, don't worry, 'cause the road will not run from it's destination.

Thanks, that helped alleviate a few tensions within me.

There are temples here in Canada. Maybe I should just take a look into it. See what the life holds.

I have a path. I just need to put my feet onto it.

Go out into the nearest woods and find a cave. Live in it for a week as a test run to see how you like living as a primative man.

Not doing drugs is part of the plane. Today is day 1 of being drug free.

Maybe you could try to find a commune or something. There are places out there where people just live off the land without much if any technology. I've googled that a lot and there are quite a few in the states, and there are bound to be some up in Canada as well.

back in highschool my teachers would try to make me do shit and i'd say no, doing shit is for chumps and they always said "well why don't you just become a monk or something?" all snarky.

and to think that that wasn't even an option!
