Content / Description

“Without a point of reference, we don't know where the mind is going”. Example of Luangta Maha Boowa. “If you want to think about something, think about the 32 parts of the body”. Daily reflection: recall your day but don't judge. “We think we know, that's where we get confused”. “See from moment to moment, we don't know when we will die, let's just live in the present moment”. “The more we're concentrated on the Buddho, the more we know what's going on around us”. “If there is past and a future, then the 'I', the ego appears”. Rest in samadhi, then investigate the body. “We cannot get enough of the senses”. Going to the heavens and hells when the citta is outside of the body, or look at the body itself.
