Finally a member!

Postby BlindJoeDeath » Wed Oct 09, 2013 12:20 pm

Hey everyone,

I've been reading Dhamma Wheel for about a year now, and finally felt like it was a good time to become a member. I hope to be a contributing member here from now on and not just another set of eyes!

Thanks,

Joe

Welcome Joe!

: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 Joe,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Nice to see you come out of the shadows...!

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
