Reintroduction from California

Post by Buckwheat »

Hello,
I was fairly active a few years back, but I was not strong enough to avoid the bickering that is so easy on a forum.

While I had not posted in years, I frequently viewed the site. With the recent updates to the TOS and moving lounge and politics to an entirely different site, along with my desire for an interactive discussion of dhamma, I decided to reset my password, log in, and dip my feet back into the waters.

Huge thank you to the moderators and admin for the recent changes and many years of hard work to make a corner of the internet that actually facilitates wisdom.

Sadhu!
Sotthī hontu nirantaraṃ - May you forever be well.

Welcome back!

:namaste:
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.
