I read this talk yesterday and spent the day reflecting on it. Venerable Ajahn Chah shows us how to live in this modern world while being above it. Highly recommended short read. Enjoy!
Convention and Liberation
A Dhammatalk by Ajahn Chahhttp://www.ajahnchah.org/book/Conventio ... ation1.php
It’s only meditation when there are two minds:
Knowing-noting mind and observing mind.
If there is only one mind, ‘I’ is always there.
The object is not the dhamma,
The dhamma is the mind
That is being aware.
