Reintroduction from California

Post by Buckwheat »

Hello,
I was fairly active a few years back, but I was not strong enough to avoid the bickering that is so easy on a forum.

While I had not posted in years, I frequently viewed the site. With the recent updates to the TOS and moving lounge and politics to an entirely different site, along with my desire for an interactive discussion of dhamma, I decided to reset my password, log in, and dip my feet back into the waters.

Huge thank you to the moderators and admin for the recent changes and many years of hard work to make a corner of the internet that actually facilitates wisdom.

Sadhu!
Sotthī hontu nirantaraṃ - May you forever be well.

Welcome back!

: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.
