New moderator: SDC

Post by Ben » Sat Aug 08, 2015 4:17 am

Dear all

SDC has accepted an invitation to join the moderation team here at DW.
As many of you who know SDC, he has been a member here for six years. In that time he has impressed many with his commitment to the Dhamma, his temperament, knowledge and his interpersonal relationships.
Please join me in welcoming and supporting SDC in his new role of moderator.
Kind regards,
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

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.
