Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Had about 2 seconds initial flare up of enjoyment when I first saw it, then controlled myself.

"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.

Thanks. Last night I sat with hopes of improving my concentration, and along comes this cat in a derby flying through the clouds.

First, make sure you have your audio turned on and up.

Now watch this video. It should start from 0:46. And don't laugh if you're compassionate!
