Pretty sure there are no zen centers in Anatolia, or even in the rest of Turkey. Let's try to encourage Enver to meet this challenge. He has a worthy roadmap that suits him, and his own self-motivation.

Road map??
I hardly call ten pictures a road map.
But, you are right. He needs lots of encouragement.

Teachers use teaching tools.
Disciples learn from teachers.
Very few, extremely few, will ever reach the Nirvana by themselves
Myself included

Sorry for taking this off topic.
Good luck to Enver M.
May you find what you seek.

These activities are part of correct effort. They help sustain positive outlook, and can help defeat negativity and hopelessness.

The first of a series of haikus:

First he weaves his web;
Now he finds the center,
Look, the spider!
“Enlightenment means to see what harm you are involved in and to renounce it.” David Brazier, The New Buddhism

“The most straightforward advice on awakening enlightened mind is this: practice not causing harm to anyone—yourself or others—and every day, do what you can to be helpful.” Pema Chodron, “What to Do When the Going Gets Rough”

Choose between two things:
Endless thought-moment dirges,
or elegant-ness.

Halfway across the world
The sound of the waves lapping at the shore
Is just the same.

a Haiku that doesn't wish peace is not a haiku.

A haiku is just an expression of artistic sensibility and sometimes also an emotional truth. No other "agenda".

Meanwhile, there is nothing in this thread that opposes peace that I can see.

Please explain what you are referring to.

You can direct your remarks to Dan74, if it is his haiku that you are referring to.

It would be surprising if you say you find peace in this haiku.
