Stay safe everyone. Don’t stay defending property too long – life is more important than property.

Well said, Chris.

It's a shame that the nice weather that I really like inevitably leads to things getting burnt. I couldn't believe that Hobart was about 14'C warmer than Brisbane yesterday... freaky stuff.

Metta,
Retro. :)

“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.”

loud gush the streamlets,

Just watching the news...to all members at risk, please take care and let us know when the danger has passed.

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

May all beings be free from danger.
May we be happy.
May we be healthy.
May we live with ease.

: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.
