Hi!

Postby dandeedo » Sun May 04, 2014 9:31 am

Hello dhamma friends!

I thought it's probably about time i introduced myself on this forum... my names Dan, been practicing the dhamma for about 4 or 5 years. I have been dealing with a very unpleasant chronic health condition for quite a while, having the dhamma as my refuge has allowed this experience, however tough its been, to be a teacher along the path...

its nice to see so many likeminded practitioners gathered here!

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Welcome Dan!

: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
