Hello Everyone,Come and join me this Sunday for a talk on MN19 or Two Kinds of Thought. It is one of my favorite suttas because it has many pertinent universal metaphors and really points to how we can begin to incline our mind towards goodness (training the amygdala to respond in a more wholesome way) and away from mind states that create suffering for ourselves and others. Most importantly, it is a teaching that the Buddha arrived at when he was a mere Bodhisatta and not yet awakened under the bodhi tree. This shows that we do not have to be a fully enlightened being in order to reap the rewards of practice.
Walkers next week when I have chemo, please still come if you would like. I will be sprawled on the couch and it would be nice to have you each just sit and be present with me. We can meditate for 10 minutes together. I may not feel like talking much if I am nauseous but would still appreciate the company.
with gratitude and metta, Pauletta
