Oh the Buddha said that? Reference please?
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Hi Paul and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Cool name, are you actually Paul Lennon, or is that a mix of Paul McCartney and John Lennon?
