    Hi All, Having a very stressful time at the moment. All bought on by desire and delusion. I never bargained that a house move would bring up so many emotions but it has. Its too late now and have to see it through. I can only hope a positive comes out of all this upheaval and upset i have caused. I remember a teaching from a monk named Ajahn Gavesgo. He said 6 simple words which i wish i had followed “make do with what you have”. Namo Amida Bu

    • A good teaching – but let’s not forget how powerful the conditions we surround ourselves with are. The shadow of ‘make do with what you have’ is that it leaves us in troublesome or unhelpful situations, the shadow of ‘go for it’ is that we never land in contentment. The middle way is best!

    • go gently x

      • Thanks for your comments Kaspa. All makes sense. Can you expand on how i can apply the middle way to this currant situation. This has been a very big teaching for me and very disturbing at times. Still is!. I hope i can learn from this and maybe from the change will come goodness i hope! Namo Amida Bu

      • Thank you Satya, im trying but not easy. Emotions are all over the place. Namo Amida Bu
