This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Great thread! This was particularly moving for me:

Finding True Refuge - Ven. Pannavati Bhikkhuni
"It's easy for us to connect with what's wrong with us... and not so easy to feel into, or to allow us, to connect with what's right and what's good in us."

This is a favorite of mine that i rediscovered recently. Some great stuff here imo but if this is a theravadan only party, mods, feel free to delete it and no hard feelings. :)


"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.
