What's up people, I have been reading off this site for a couple days and finally have decided to become part of it. I hate technology sometimes but being able to have access to such a wealth of knowledge is truly a gift I think. I am from central Wisconsin and there isn't anywhere to discuss Buddhism in my area, at least not that I have found. And none of my friends are really into Buddhism or know enough about the teachings to discuss them, not that I am an expert. All I have been doing up until now is just listening to talks on the Internet and reading books. But I feel to help deepen my understanding of some things it would help to grapple with theese ideas with others, and to ask and answer questions, and to investigate with others what is REALLY going on here hahaha. Anyways I am glad to be here and am glad that here is here.

Welcome Jack!

: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
