Finally a member!

Postby BlindJoeDeath » Wed Oct 09, 2013 12:20 pm

Hey everyone,

I've been reading Dhamma Wheel for about a year now, and finally felt like it was a good time to become a member. I hope to be a contributing member here from now on and not just another set of eyes!

Thanks,

Joe

Welcome Joe!

: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

Greetings Joe,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

:buddha1:

Nice to see you come out of the shadows...!

Metta,

"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
