Hope everyone has/had a nice time

I shall, indeed, be napping when the change occurs.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

Naps are good. I had a nappy old year and dont anticipate a change. Same to you :)

My two year old is having a nappy new year, but he has made a new year's resolution that 2013 will be the year that he gives them up. (Non-British English speakers might have to look this one up - I know it often causes confusion in the USA...)

For all of us, may 2013 bring happiness and freedom. I'm off to take refuges and precepts at the local monastery in a few minutes, and will include you all in my best wishes.

Fixed.

: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
