Thank you very much for the birthday wishes
I started my 19th birthday with a job interview, which was a breeze - I got the job
Lunch with the family, a big cake and a visit to the botanical gardens.
Then to polish things off I met up with the local meditation group and we had a good sit and a good talk (I also gave them the dhammawheel web address)
It was a great day
Hope you all had a great day too!
"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 BodhesakoNanavira Thera's teachings - An existential approach to the Dhamma
