Hello Kitz ,
Nice to have you on board , and thats great courage and wisdom to leave all the intoxicants behind . Once i used to think of them as a part of life , then realizing that life by itself is so intoxicating , i left them behind . Now many years later , i find its just not life that can be intoxicating , it is the closed eyes that can also be intoxicating , the peace , rapture , tranquility , stillness and sense of well - being are also dangerous and should be laid down , guided on by the alertness of annica ( change ).
Its the equipoise that is of great use , pleasant or unpleasant are just the same , they keep following each other and can fool us very badly
Once again , looking forward to the many learnings .
