I've been practicing Therevada Buddhism for a little over two years, but have not had the experience of being apart of an active sangha due to where I live. I'm twenty years old and actively study, and enjoy discussing, suttas and things I have read within the Pali Canon. Glad to be here.

Welcome!

: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.
