For a person of unsoddened mind,
unassaulted awareness,
abandoning merit and evil,
wakeful,
there is no danger, no fear.

Don’t give way to heedlessness
or to intimacy with sensual delight
for a heedful person, absorbed in jhana,
attains an abundance of ease.

WEEKLY WISDOM 13/06/2016

Not disparaging, not injuring,
restraint in line with the Patimokkha,
moderation in food,
dwelling in seclusion,
commitment to the heightened mind:
this is the teaching of the awakened.

WEEKLY WISDOM 06/06/2016

The pain, the discomfort, the sickness are what they are. We can always cope with the way life moves and changes. The mind of an enlightened human being is flexible and adaptable. The mind of the ignorant person is conditioned and fixed.

– Ajahn Sumedho, “Seeing the Way”
