Aloha from Cali

Postby KealaKC » Sun Feb 17, 2013 11:06 pm

Hi, My name is Keala and I'm in rural northern California. I've been privately practicing more on the line of Theravada Buddhism for about a decade now. I have never joined with other Buddhists, since there are none I know of in this area. I have much to learn, and have been absorbing as much information online as I can :)

Welcome Keala!

: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

Greetings Keala,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Metta,

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
