Hello from Spain!

Postby Annis » Tue Aug 27, 2013 11:09 am

Hello! I'm glad to find a place like this. One day I began reading about buddhism and I realized that I have similar ideas since I was a child. It's like if I had been almost buddhist all my life and I didn't know it. Now, I continue reading and opening my mind to new learnings of this religion.

Sorry for my english :tongue: and nice to meet you!

Yes, many of us feel like that.
Welcome to Dhammawheel, Annis.

“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome Annis!

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
