Thanks

“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

MN 106
Aneñja-sappaya Sutta
Conducive to the Imperturbable
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html

This Sutta has some complex stuff in it. The Nanamoli/Bodhi translation has three pages of extracts from the Commentaries. It deals with formless attainments and what the destination if one dies without becoming an Arahant... There is also some reference to dry insight towards the end...

“The incomparable Wheel of Dhamma has been set in motion by the Blessed One in the deer sanctuary at Isipatana, and no seeker, brahmin, celestial being, demon, god, or any other being in the world can stop it.”
