Welcome!

:namaste:
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.

Hi i'm also new from the same town.
I've been looking for an answer to something for a while but can't find much on the web. There's something similar on an Eckhardt Toll board, which helped that it's possibly similar elsewhere but only somewhat or missing a vital ingredient plus the peculiarities between differing body types, but I suppose it's personal so I can't post it either and from reading some posts your not really supposed to talk about experiences. Maybe a one on one with a teacher? In the meanwhile if I was born 100 000 years ago before articulate language and knowledge systems developed I would be on my own anyway, but under nature's trillion year old roof where stuff had been happening to evolved societies billions of light years ago anyway under this same roof. Maybe I'll get help billions of light years away into the future on the same topic. Just saying, info is scarce.
