Daily Mindfulness 7/24/14 - Clear Forest Pool


“Try to be mindful, and let things take their natural course. Then your mind will become still in any surroundings, like a clear forest pool. All kinds of wonderful, rare animals will come to drink at the pool, and you will clearly see the nature of all things. You will see many strange and wonderful things come and go, but you will be still. This is the happiness of the Buddha.”
-Ajahn Chah


Mindfulness Practice for the Day: Today. just play the observer. Notice what arises in your mind.

Daily Mindfulness 7/23/14 - Adult Education


“Suffering is our best teacher because it hangs onto us and keeps us in its grip until we have learnt that particular lesson. Only then does suffering let go. If we haven’t learnt our lesson, we can be quite sure that the same lesson is going to come again, because life is nothing but an adult education class. If we don’t pass in any of the subjects, we just have to sit the examination again. Whatever lesson we have missed, we will get it again. That is why we find ourselves reacting to similar situations in similar ways many times.”
-Ayya Khema


Mindfulness Practice for the Day: Today, stick with the suffering until you learn something.
