Welcome m12_shakes!

: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:

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Nice avatar! Is that a pawn seeing himself as a king? Or just an interest in chess?

Thank you all for the warm welcome :smile:

David, to answer your question, it's both! The pawn has the capability to be the most powerful piece on the board (i.e namely the queen) and I do LOVE chess :geek:
Kindest regards,

Greetings m12,

Welcome to the forum.

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
