Kamma: getting a job, house etc. is due to our kamma. Reflection: “what do you want to do with the rest of your life?” Explanation of taking refuge in the Buddha/Dhamma/Sangha. The more we go on the path and see the results, the more our faith increases. Hindrance: one of the big obstacles is to have expectations, being open-minded is the path of practice. Difference between symbols and experience. Being grateful toward one's parents. Generosity: examples of the Thai generosity. Generosity/respect/gratitude are all warm/pleasant feelings arising from an open heart. Method to open the heart. Daily reflection to see the patterns and the tricks we are falling in.
