Welcome!

: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

Not all bhikkhus, Ryan, not all!

Everyday, I am blowing my mind due to happiness and freedom that I enjoy being a bhikkhu. So, why should I envy anyone else - male or female - experiencing the same?

However, a big welcome to you. World needs free-living souls :)

EDIT: Most of us looking for a Nibbana in some other country -- then & there rather than here & now. But you do it at your home. Some might learn few things, if you can say something about it. :)
I'll restart my yearlong meditation retreat on 15th June 2014, hence will not be here.

"Bhikkhus, there are these three things that shine when exposed, not when concealed. What three? (1) The moon. (2) The sun. (3) The Dhamma and discipline proclaimed by the Tathagata."
- Anguttara Nikaya, 3.131, Paticchanna Sutta

"Silence is the language of God; all else is poor translation."
– Rumi
