2021-06-13 Sensitivity and Restraint 31:52
Ajahn Sucitto
One of the most fundamental requirements in meditation is restraining the mind. Rather than running out, energy can settle and calm. Then one’s effort is neither straining towards some goal, nor enmeshed in agitation. There’s space for sensitivity, receptivity, listening. When the outflows are restrained goodwill, compassion, clarity and wisdom come forth on their own.

2021-06-13 Stop Running and Your Real Home Appears 56:31
Ajahn Sucitto
The tendency to keep running out into concepts eventually results in overload, insecurity, anxiety, collapse. We’re desperately looking for sanity. The steadiness and fulfillment we seek is already here, in the non-conceptual intelligence of body and heart. Rather than going out, return to where body, mind and heart energy come together. In this presence our real home appears.

Bhante Bodhidhamma
These two verses are about the process of judging. It is something we are doing all the time whether of people, political parties, other countries and so on. So it is as well to remnd ourselves how we come to a just and correct judgements especially with all the fake news about. I made a mistake at the end quoting the Pali Dhammassa gutto which means Protector of the Dhamma/Law. I ought to have quoted Dhammattho, Standing in the Dhamma - Righteous.

Jack Kornfield
Here we are in the change of seasons—the great turning. The sun is something for us to pay attention to, something we often take for granted. Notice the way the gift of sunlight streams behind everything—it feeds the plants we eat. We can be grateful for sunlight and trees, for people we love, for moments of goodness, and for the breath within our breast. And as our gratitude grows, we may discover a happiness without cause.
