Hey Everybody

Greetings!

I am a Buddhist from a small Ohio town and joined to this forum to talk to more like minded poeple. It's unfortunate living in a small town where it seems as if you are the only Buddhist. I hope to get to know you all and engage in some interesting discussions.

Welcome LazyOne!

:anjali:
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

Hello, LazyOne! Nice to see another Ohioan; I'm from the Cincinnati area myself. :) Be well, and welcome, friend!

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Greetings Lazyone and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
If its any consolation, many of our members live in places where there are no other Buddhists.
So it is fortunate that we have Dhamma Wheel.
kind regards,

Ben

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
