Welcome squarepeg!

: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

Hi squarepeg!
Good to see a Hoosier here :) I wasn't born or raised in Indiana but I lived in Fort Wayne for almost 18 years and so am only part Hoosier! If you live in some parts of Indiana i can see why you picked the name squarepeg. There are quite a few Buddhist groups (Mahayana: Zen and Tibetan) in Bloomington though. Welcome :)

Welcome! May you find what you're looking for!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
