Postby Jack Charles » Thu Nov 22, 2012 7:51 am

What's up people, I have been reading off this site for a couple days and finally have decided to become part of it. I hate technology sometimes but being able to have access to such a wealth of knowledge is truly a gift I think. I am from central Wisconsin and there isn't anywhere to discuss Buddhism in my area, at least not that I have found. And none of my friends are really into Buddhism or know enough about the teachings to discuss them, not that I am an expert. All I have been doing up until now is just listening to talks on the Internet and reading books. But I feel to help deepen my understanding of some things it would help to grapple with theese ideas with others, and to ask and answer questions, and to investigate with others what is REALLY going on here hahaha. Anyways I am glad to be here and am glad that here is here.

Welcome Jack!

:anjali:
This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty. Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah

Welcome Jack! Happy Thanksgiving!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
