Indeed. I had a very nice Sunday, doing some meditation, tidying the outside deck and endeavouring to maintain mindfulness throughout the day.
This morning at 5am I was woken up by a cat we’re looking after – she was perched up on top of the curtains and jumped down on me! I took the opportunity to try and keep the simplicity going, giving up on trying to get back to sleep - instead, meditating in the front room with some guided meditation recordings I downloaded a few years ago off the Buddhanet website.

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)
Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'. (Snp 3.6)
