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

Hi Olaf

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Kind regards

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

saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sæll Ólafur!

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