In thinking about new user interfaces for sutta websites, one of the ideas was for users to be able to select a problem they are having and then be given sutta recommendations based on their immediate need.
So I thought I would seek the community’s ideas. I’d love to hear both ideas for problems/issues to be solved as well as what suttas you think would be a good match.
Here are some of my ideas. These are kind of just brainstorms. They don’t all fit neatly into a category.
- I’d like to be inspired
- I’d like to overcome jealousy
- I’m too sleepy to meditate. What should I do?
- I’d like to become more generous
- I’m having problems with my family
- I’d like to read a good story.
- I’m overwhelmed with illness
- It feels like I’m not making progress
- I’m feeling alone in my spiritual practice
- I’m dealing with a lot of uncertainty in my life.
- My parent may die soon.
- I’m feeling too lazy to practice.
