Welcome!

: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

I hope I can contribute in some small way.
Small or big or somewhere middling, it will be welcome.

Hi Pax
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Greetings Pax,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

My favourite ever Scrabble moment involved the world "pax".

Metta,

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