A warm hello to all and all. May you be well. :smile:
When the mind only minds the mind,
reality stands alone and shines,
this is wisdom in action,
its expression is compassion...

Greetings Waterearth,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Waterearth,

Your avatar would work better as a transparent PNG image.

:jumping: ... yes nicer indeed. It's the symbol for the third eye.
I think i'm going to start a new post about it and see what comes up.

Welcome friend
:anjali:
"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
