David, Khalil Body, Mkoll and ven. Aki: Thank you very much for your support and encouragement. This is truly needed since the changes to come certainly demand a lot of viriya and saddha.
David, yes it is not encouraged to spend a lot of time on the web. Moreso any profiles or accounts on social media is prohibited. And to be honest I'm happy about it. Still it's a monastery and especially if one is new to the training I suppose it is beneficial to focus on ones duties and meditation practice. Who knows... in the far future I might be able to contribute again.
However... On this dhammawheel I was more a "consumer" of good information than a huge contributor. Thank you and others for keeping this opportunity up for sharing dhamma, discussions and experiences
Get the wanting out of waitingWhat does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address.
