It's gonna be hard to part with, but it's all about letting go isn't it.

"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

Not a surfer, huh? How far are you from the beach? Or is it lack of balance for the board on water?

Surfing can make one quite concentrated I think. But then so can meditation :lol:

Ya know if that poor fellow in the photo above had just pulled his plough like he was supposed to, instead of standing around on it, he surely would not have been swept out to sea and into such a perilous situation.
