(Recording not available) 
The Buddha instructed us to bring awareness to the five aggregates of form, feeling tone, perception, mental formations and consciousness and to notice how we cling to and identify with them. If we cling and identify we will suffer. Non-clinging = Non-suffering.

2012-09-24 Deepening concentration, developing happiness 56:14
Any time we practice mindfulness and wise attention, we are weakening the impact of the hindrances, and strengthening what are known as the five jhanic factors: meditative qualities that support the continuity and deepening of our meditation. Each of the jhanic factors actually balances and acts as an antidote to one of the hindrances. This talk looks at how to strengthen the jhanic factors, and use them skillfully as antidotes to the hindrances.
