Hi everybody,

New to the forums and new to the practice of Buddhism in general. I have been semi-interested in Buddhism for quite some time but I'm only really diving in now at almost 30 years of age. I perused a few different forums before joining here but this seemed like the place to be! I'm sure I'm going to have plenty of questions and look forward to some interesting discussions. Hope you're all doing well.

Metta,

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Welcome Cannonball!

: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
