Hello, again

Post by Dhammakid » Sun Oct 13, 2013 8:54 pm

Hi everyone,
I'm Kourtney. I actually joined the forum in 2009 and have had an active account ever since. I tend to be active for a while and then disappear, but I always come back for some reason. Still haven't figured that out, lol.

Anyway, cheers. I hope you all are well.

Welcome back, Kourtney!
“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.

Thanks everyone!

My posting will be intermittent since I don't currently have consistent internet access. But I'll stop by whenever I can.

Welcome back!

:anjali:
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.

- Ajahn Chah
