Hello to all Noble Friends from Florida, USA

Post by jons »

I am Jonathan Saing, live Pinellas Park, Florida. I am new to the Forum; however, I am not new to Theravada. I practiced meditation with local teachers for more than 20 years. Since the pandemic started, I didn't have a chance to listen to dhammatalk or discussion at all. I spent time online.

Welcome!

:anjali:
This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don’t cling to it. Whether it’s like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty... Don’t try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That’s all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ‘us’ nor ‘them’. None of them are worthy of clinging to.
