Hello all Dharma friends!

Postby Nimbus108 » Thu Nov 29, 2012 12:32 am

Hello, my name is Ronny

Me and my partner Buddha Dave have been studying and practicing different paths including the words and methods of the Buddha for a long time now.

We are especially interested in working with concepts like sunnata, non-clinging to phenomena, and developing the skill of skillfulness itself through concentration and insight meditation.

We have created some material which I hope you all would take a look at. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=nuw6jj8juQA

There is no I in the world. Still we would like to empower all the individuals on this planet with the sublime technology of the Buddha put into a contemporary context. I hope you neither like nor dislike, but judge our material from the standard of skillfulness, knowing the intention to be helping all sentient beings.

We would really like to be a part of and contribute to a community who get what we're trying to do.

Maybe the Dhamma Wheel is such a place, time will tell. :)

Anyways, all kinds of metta for you all, and may all living entities find enlightenment.

Love,
Ron

Thank you David!

"I" guess the m. is for mobile devices. I'll post the link again. Www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuw6jj8juQA

We really want a discussion going on practice of non-clinging to phenomena and the developing of skillfulness.

We will be posting many videos of our understanding of these subjects, and it would be great to get input from practicing Buddhists.

This is also a time in the world with many problems and much suffering. "I" believe these tools could solve those problems and create a new golden age, if we can make it understandable and desirable for the general public. The aspect of skillfulness "I" think is a great entry. No one cares about being a sinner these days, but who wants to be labeled as unskillful? And who doesn't want to become more skillful, in any field or domain?

The Buddha has by far the best technology for developing skillfulness both in individual fields, and applied to developing skillfulness in and of itself, as concentration and insight training, utill we skillfully cease all grasping and clinging to all phenomena and gain final release.

"I" am not there yet, but "I" have enough experience to know that the method works. "I" am humbly and selfishly asking for Dharma friends to share their experience of the path for "my" own benefit, but also for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Dharma blessings,
Ron

Hello Waimengwan and Chris!

How is your practice going? And yours David?

I'm a bit of a lazy rascal when it comes to sitting. I love doing it when I get down to it, but the monkey mind is good at excuses and distractions.

I'm getting better at practicing mindfulness in daily activities though, seeing phenomena just as phenomena, but the "I" still pops up every so often and desire for sense gratification like coffee and sometimes girls still disturb my mind.

I'm having good progress now with using peripheral vision, that is looking somewhere in empty space in front of me and trying to see the whole picture at once without giving any energy to anything in particular. That way people including pretty girls just become phenomena, energy in the space I'm navigating through.

Also I've been doing different kinds of martial arts since I was young. Still at it and looking for students. The breath, and mindfulness and concentration is the essence of any real martial art. Working with movement and breath is also a great way to bring mindfulness both into the space of training and everyday activities like moving around from place to place.

Anyway, it would be great to hear your take on this path!

Dharma blessings,
Ron
