Welcome DD!

: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

I think this is more your style DD:

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

I'm not sure how much truth is in the statement, 'haters are going to hate'. I assume a 'hater' is one who hates something, so that strikes me as a rather pointless tautology. I take my practice seriously and enjoy this board because of the richness of information provided by the participants. I am an English speaker and this is an English forum. I am sure you are providing rich information, but I'm afraid I won't be able to understand it unless English is used.
