"Mindfulness in plain english" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

"Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

Just thought id share what works have greatly helped my practice, no doubt most of you will most likely be aware of most of these but thought i would share incase some are new and would benefit

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the wingèd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

Greetings Craig,

Thanks for sharing.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
