I have returned but still learning

Postby Still Searching » Wed Sep 04, 2013 9:33 pm

Hello all,

I have been away for quite some time, getting to know my true self and studying the Five Precepts.
Recently, I have had some very unfortunate events.. I have lost a very close friend, I am having financial trouble and had a fall out with a relative of mine.
I was in and out of hospital due to personal issues with my mental health.

All in all, I am trying to see the positive sides of everything that has happened. I realized that I have survived through all of the misfortune so in some aspect, I must be strong and can walk on whatever the outcome of my situations are.

Hopefully soon someday I will reach Nirvana.

Welcome back Still Searching!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

It's lovely to see you all again! :group:

I forgot to mention, I lost my home, too! :cry:
But I am currently in a temporary accommodation and looking for a new flat so I have a place to stay and am safe and sound. :bow:

I hope you all had a lovely, wonderful summer! :D
Winter is soon upon us so let's hear what's happened and changed so for, what has everyone been upto? :smile:
