Hello from South Carolina

Post by copestattic » Sat Jun 26, 2010 6:42 pm

I struggle with short temper, stress and worry. It's hard for me to separate reaction from reality and to not worry about various problems whether I can do anything about them or not. It's a continuous conscious effort but Buddhism has helped immensely and I think talking with more experienced people will help even more. After being on the site for only a few minutes I already found answers to some of my questions!

Welcome copestattic!

:anjali:
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 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.

- Ud 3.5


"Dont send the mind outside. Watch the mind right at the mind."
