Re: Master of mindfulness, Jon Kabat-Zinn

In my experience, when I try to let in the seen be only the seen etc., I end up in a kind of anomic, zoned-out state, like a blissed-out zombie. That can't be right! It isn't right, but it's a fairly common 'wrong turning' for people to take. I'm not sure if I can explain the difference in any unde...

Re: Right Speech: Getting Personal

This is an interesting debate and topic imo - can not say I agree or disagree with anyone particular, but when I see leakings of pm's, then something telles me this is not right or fair, and actually quite offensive in my understanding Ajhan Chah had a saying like: "true but not right - right but no...

Re: Asking for Help re: nutriment and sensual desire

This is a good concept. Perhaps you can elaborate on how you do this. Is it specifically watching for hunger as the cue which permits you to eat? So like mentioned above, it follows the same pattern as other hindrances do when experienced: As long as I, me and mine are gone, then meditation goes on...

Re: Asking for Help re: nutriment and sensual desire

Hi, by coincidence and by doing general practice I discovered that if one manages to stop listening to the mind for what is the right diet, and solely listen to what the body says, - then the diet will be balanced according to the activities one picks up. I been practicing a few months with fasting...

Re: Not attaining stream-entry

Re: Not attaining stream-entry
