2020-10-17 Be Like A Satellite Dish: Extraordinary Sati and Undistracted Samadhi 43:08
  Ayya Medhanandi
Respect means to stop enough to see truly – not to be ruled any longer by objects and experiences, not to be locked in by our greed, ill will, deluded ideas or ignorance. Turn the field of kilesas into pure earth – an untarnished unblemished field of wisdom, a paññā bhumi instead of a kilesa bhumi – with proactive frequent contemplation. Learn what it means to abide in the purity of the mind, undisturbed, able to receive all signals from the sense world with equanimity.

2020-10-17 Contemplation and the Special Quality of Mindfulness - Two Questions 20:57
  Ayya Medhanandi
Practice deepens when we are present here and now, able to apply intuitive understanding rather than concepts to our experience. So contemplate contemplation. Know the mind directly, not through thought. Similarly, mindfulness is not to be forced or refined by willpower but with humility - offering our full attention and devotion to intuitive seeing and understanding what is before us in terms of the 3 characteristics.
