Do all threads and questions have to be moderated before they show up? . .

Only on "Discovering Theravada". And "Open Dhamma Hot Topics"

If your intention is to have a discussion, post in one of the other areas.

[Generally members don't start theads in "Open Dhamma Hot Topics", threads are moved there if they become very contentious.]

Greetings Wesley,

Welcome to this side of the fence!

Metta,
Retro. :)

there's no such thing
as a stranger.

Let moderators know if you'd like any of your topics moved out of those two forums.

Welcome Wesley!

: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
