Hi everybody.

Postby A Medic » Tue Nov 03, 2009 4:25 pm

My name is Casey. I'll be going by A Medic on here. I'm 25 and a medic in the US Army Reserves. I just finished LPN school, and I'm working on my RN. One day I hope to become a Physician Assistant. My interest is mainly in Soto Zen Buddhism, but I also like Theravada. I mainly just read post on here probably won't post to much myself.

Hi Casey
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome, Casey.

Several of us are interested in Zen, too.

"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement." -- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

Greetings Casey,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.


Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

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)

Welcome friend
"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta
