Welcome!

:namaste:
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

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.
