Hello from South Carolina

Postby copestattic » Sat Jun 26, 2010 6:42 pm

I struggle with short temper, stress and worry. It's hard for me to separate reaction from reality and to not worry about various problems whether I can do anything about them or not. It's a continuous conscious effort but Buddhism has helped immensely and I think talking with more experienced people will help even more. After being on the site for only a few minutes I already found answers to some of my questions!

Welcome copestattic!

:anjali:
This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty. Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah
