A BIG HELLO with HAPPINESS, for all of their

Postby camille » Tue Jun 24, 2014 9:36 am

:namaste: Hello, my name is Camille and I’m new french girl based in London, in this forum. :namaste:
:hug: I would want all greet you warmly :hug:

I meet Vipassana Theravada in Mexico in 2006. In this time, I was practicing, more or less 2 hours for day and I make a retreat
(10 days) with Venerable Bhikkhu Nandisena ( ordination in California). After I come back in France ..I have such much difficulties in my
life that because I wasn’t practicing so much. But trying to keep contact with the Bouddhisme. For exemple, reading books. Now my life is more quiet.
I was able, again, to come back, in the Bouddhisme. And I make a retreat (mai/juin-15 days 2014) with a burmese monk : Venerable Sayadaw U Nanda Sidhi,
in France. Now I practice 4 hours for day. Trying to keep my Concentration and my attention all the day, I’m watchful.
It’s not so hard for install this discipline…If your trying to report all your activity with noting in our mind. But sometimes …
I lost my self-confidence, or I’m not so carefully with the hindrances !!! But I try, try, try to continusly not forgot my goal. And after my ability
come back, with calm and tranquility. Inside of me, I am persuaded, I want to become a nun :). But I feel,
Sometimes fear to take this way…If I can’t arrive !! If it’s to hard ! And in the same time…I know some people around me, don’t understand,
don’t want I become a nun. There is great reluctance. It’s because for the moment I try, step by step, change myself, for more
Spiritual maturity and for my family, my boyfriend, and my frien, accept this changing.

;) If you have any advice I would read carefully ;)

hihi !! I hope I haven’t bored all of their :thinking:

I wish all of their find a great happiness !! :jumping:

Bienvenue camille!
Je n'ai pas tous les accents sur mon clavier, mais j'espere que tu me comprends comme meme!

Un effort magnifique avec ton anglais! Je crois que mon francais n'est pas comparable!

Je te souhaite un bon 'voyage' avec nous!

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
