Hi, & Welcome Aboard
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Welcome Wesley! :heart:

Do all threads and questions have to be moderated before they show up? . .

Only on "Discovering Theravada". And "Open Dhamma Hot Topics"

If your intention is to have a discussion, post in one of the other areas.

[Generally members don't start theads in "Open Dhamma Hot Topics", threads are moved there if they become very contentious.]

Greetings Wesley,

Welcome to this side of the fence!

“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)”

In the cherry blossom's shade
there's no such thing
as a stranger.


welcome, Wesley :anjali:

Let moderators know if you'd like any of your topics moved out of those two forums.

Welcome Wesley!

: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

Hi Wesley and welcome!
“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
