Yeah some editing would do it good. The last two sections shouldnt even be there.
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. 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.http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/thai/dune/giftsheleft.html"
While you're fixing the text, how about dropping a couple of the 'external links'? The Light of Asia is, surely, superseded as a reference. And the 'Feeling Buddha' is far enough from any mainstream interpretation to be seriously misleading to anyone who really needs the basics about the 4NT.
