Happy Birthday!

: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

Happy Birthday ! :twothumbsup:

Thank you, dear friends!

I'm in deep practical exploration of Satipatthana, and I hope you'll find useful my unexpected findings when I'll emerge and present them.

Greetings Dmytro,

I look forward to hearing your Satipatthana thoughts.

Metta,

Thank you, Paul :)

I really need to feel people I am conducting all this exploration for.

I don't know who exactly will find it useful. So far it seems like many people would find it beneficial.

Overall, it's so difficult that I would hardly do it without having other people in mind.
