Hello from Sydney Australia

Postby alwaysclear » Fri Nov 02, 2012 10:22 am

Hello, I'm a 30 year old Australian guy in Sydney. I've been interested in meditation for a long time and practice when I can. I found this fourm and thought I'd give it a go. I want to meet like minded people on the spiritual path and learn more from others that meditate.

hi alwaysclear 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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Welcome Alwaysclear!

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
