2010-11-09 Satipatthana Sutta, Second Foundation: Neutral Feelings 58:18
  Rodney Smith
Neutral feelings pervade our life when we try to maintain a high level of intensity for our life's purpose and meaning. Busyness is an indication of this dependency, but as soon as the energy decreases below an established threshold, our mind wonders, and we become dull, listless, and uninterested. Awareness has not waned in the slightest, but we have been conditioned to stop paying attention.

2010-11-11 Goodness and Joy : Uplifting the Heart 53:34
  Yanai Postelnik
Spiritual practice rests on a deep trust in the fundamental wholesomeness of our hearts seeking for happiness. We can learn to honour the goodness of our core motivation, even as we recognise our need to deepen the skill and wisdom with which we pursue genuine wellbeing. This includes recognising the importance of connecting with that which brings joy to our heart as part of our spiritual practice, and honouring our own wholsesome qualities and actions.
