Hello Dhamma Wheel!

I am very new to the dhamma and brand new here, so I am looking forward to reading and communicating with you all!

Take care!

Hitting the snooze bar of life may seem easier, but practicing toward awakening is a much better idea.

Welcome Libertus!

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Greetings Libertus and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“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.
