Hello Dhammawheel!

Post by AlexBreckwoldt » Thu Oct 11, 2012 5:59 pm

Hi! My name is Alex. I'm from Germany, so excuse the spelling and grammatical mistakes I am bound to make.
I'm 18 years old and I got into Buddhism about a month or two ago.
I don't really have any friends to discuss my views with, let alone get any help regarding my practice from, so I thought it would be great to become a part of this wonderful community.

PS: I quite enjoy the bandwidth of emoticons which I am able to choose from.

Hi Alex and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome aboard! Please feel free to post topics or private message me or anything like that. I hope you find your stay fruitful!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Stuff I write about things.

Welcome Alex!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

"Dont send the mind outside. Watch the mind right at the mind."

- Ajahn Dune Atulo
