Greetings.

Greetings to all.

The purpose of this post is to make public the fact of my having recently joined this forum.

No great cause for excitement.

:bow:
Winding paths,
Forever criss-crossing in
Ways unforeseen.
Who could say from
Whence they have come
Or wither they shall lead?
Irrevocably perched upon a
Groundless foothold,
Bearing witness to the
Traceless passage of an
Empty breeze...

Here sighs the wind,
And I too with it...

Welcome!

:anjali:
“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

Welcome friend :anjali:
Get the wanting out of waiting

What does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address. – SN 5.2

If they take what's yours, tell yourself that you're making it a gift.
Otherwise there will be no end to the animosity. - Ajahn Fuang Jotiko

Welcome!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Welcome!
He who neither goes too far nor lags behind,
greedless he knows: "This is all unreal,"
--such a monk gives up the here and the beyond,
just as a serpent sheds its worn-out skin.
