Hi!

Hello,

I'm 39 and been practicing Theravada Buddhism on and off [more off than on] for about twenty years or so, with a particular focus on the Forest Tradition & lineage of Ajahn Chah. I have been in lurk mode on this forum for a while, but have been learning from and enjoying the discussions. As I need help with my own practice, I thought it time to join up.

:smile:

Peace, DD

Welcome!

: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

Hi DD and welcome to DW!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
