Hello fellow travellers on the path. I have been practicing meditation for 4 years as taught by SN.Goenka and I endeavour to live a Dhamma life even though this society is geared to go in the opposite direction. I see this in particular with my children who are bombarded with things that stimulate the senses and cement the cycle of cravings and aversions. Whatever happened to a tin can and a stick in the dirt? I don’t profess to have great knowledge about the teachings of the Buddha but I do endeavour to keep my focus on the quality of my thoughts, actions and words.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding: Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra Panyapatipo
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither! With Metta Upāsaka Cittasanto Blog-Some Suttas Translated. "Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."
