Hello again!

Postby withoutcolour » Sun Sep 04, 2011 11:52 pm

Hi everyone,

Was absent for a while... had a lot of stuff going on in my life, strayed away from the dhamma. Spent a lot of time in the last several months reflecting on samsara and dukkha -- trying to get my stuff together. All in all, a resounding success, things are going in a much more positive direction.
So here I am, back for more, ladies and gentleman. Glad to rejoin the dhammawheel internet sangha :)

With metta,

Welcome back!

Welcome back Brie!

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

well established, restrained

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
