We continue to explore a number of ways to deepen practice in daily life, working with challenges difficulties, grounding in the body, working with intention, and practicing with speech and interaction as well as others.
Even though we talk a lot about mindfulness, we often don't fully understand what the Buddha meant by "samma sati" or right mindfulness. This talk explores samma sati and also "sati-panna"-mindfulness wisdom: the wisdom that naturally develops when we pay attention.
Wisdom arises naturally when there is a steady momentum of "pure" awareness. That is, when the mind is not colored by views based in greed, aversion or bewilderment. Learning to recognize and trust this natural process is a keystone of the practice.
The Buddha points the way to uncovering our essential goodness, here, exploring the five spiritual powers that turn our mind towards the beautiful; how to become intimate with all of life's experiences.
