hello again

Postby nathan » Tue Jun 23, 2009 3:06 am

Hi, nathan here;

Well, the ordination is on temporary hold and I am back home to sort a few things out. Had a great experience of Thailand, found some good possibilities there for ordination, came back and spent some time at a monastery here in Canada and now I am home for a bit to recharge the batteries and make new plans for the next leg of the journey.

As I will have a little more free time, I thought I would spend some of that time catching up on whats new at Dhamma Wheel. I might even post a little...

Hi to old friends and new

But whoever walking, standing, sitting, or lying down overcomes thought, delighting in the stilling of thought: he's capable, a monk like this, of touching superlative self-awakening. § 110. {Iti 4.11; Iti 115}

Welcome back Nathan!
I'm glad that Thailand was a good experience and hope to hear about it when you've got time.
I hope all goes well with sorting out stuff back at home.

“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.

Glad to see you again

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
