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)

Hi Bodom,

The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Received this email today:

Nevin, when I went to our local Post Office to ship today's orders, they told me that your first order had been returned.  My Postmaster said that your Post Office returned it too soon - they should have given you 15 days to pick it up. My local Post Office is sending it to you again. 

Hopefully your own Post Office will hold it long enough for you to pick it up this time.

:woohoo:
