Hi there,
My name is Olaf, thanks for this contribution, I'll most likely be surfing around this page, reading without commenting for my mind is sneaky thing that has temporarily been forbidden to express itself too much :P

I've been watching my breath for about ten years, on and off, on when in pain, off when I think I can control things - step by step getting more balanced.

Look forward to surf this page.

Warmest,
Olaf

Nice to see you here at Dhamma Wheel.

Hi Olaf

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Kind regards

Ben
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Sæll Ólafur!

Gakktu í bæinn. Það er gott að sjá þig hérna.

Kær kveðja,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu
The Great Sage did thus proclaim
With many a diverse chosen name
Vipassanā stilled and purified,
That to Emergence is allied.

Saṃsāra-cycle’s swamp of pain
Is vast and terrible; a man
Wisely should strive as best he can,
If he would this Emergence gain.
(Visuddhimagga XXI)
