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.

Añjali
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 - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

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

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.

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