Hello everyone!

I just signed up to Dhammawheel, and I'm excited to learn from all of you!

Religiously, I practice a form of Messianic Judaism, but I've been learning about Theravada Buddhism and reading selections from the Nikayas lately, so I thought I'd join :)

Thank you.

Thank you for your welcome, David!

As much as I love cookies, I have to stay away from most, because of a recently discovered gluten intolerance ... I see it as a chance to develop more self control :tongue:

Welcome cookiemonster!

: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

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