Greetings Gonzo
I don't know what an 'anarcho-buddhist' is, though I am sure you'll tell us all in your own good time.
Anyway, I hope you like it here!

Hello Gonzo, Welcome! :hello:
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

Hello friend

"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako

Rock on Gonzo. I think we are all anarchic in a way, we all reject the samsara system and work towards something better :)
