2023-08-20 The Fire of Illumination 26:34
Ayya Medhanandi
We wish for perfect conditions in life. But true perfection only arises within the awakened mind. So we are like mendicants of the present moment – not able to control or know what lies ahead. Let us not lose heart. In truth, this Middle Way of awareness has great fruit and great benefit, and we can walk it – even in this digitally driven era. Being patient, brave, and staying true to the wisest course, we gain strength and skill at each step. It may feel like balancing on a tightrope of fire. But with unflagging resolve and care, we burn out delusion. And that will be the fire of our illumination.

Guided meditation, reflection, and (just Nathan's part of a Q&R session) Bear in mind, this is not speaking about truth as an objective exploration of scientific understanding, but an exploration of the truth of first person subjective knowledge: which is all a meditator can know about their experience.
