Hello Again

Post by Modus.Ponens » Mon Oct 02, 2017 10:38 pm

Hello DW.

It's been a long time since I last loged in. I had to leave because I was adding too much conflict and wasn't speaking effectively. Best I accept I am not effective and turn off the Politics section. I do not regret telling the truth. I regret telling it harshly, which ends up obscuring truth, or even distort it throuh sarcasm and/or irritation. This is not a small matter in a buddhist comunity. It helped fuel other conflicts indirectly, something I wish didn't happen.

Anyway, I need a frequent input of Dhamma and rejoining DW is one of the best ways to get it. I hope all is well with everyone.

"He turns his mind away from those phenomena and, having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.' " - Jhana Sutta

Its good to see you back MP.

:anjali:
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 no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan

This is what matters. Every thing else is trivial.
Welcome back!
