FULL MOON – Saturday 13th August 2011

The active mind is difficult to tame,
flighty and wandering wherever it wills:
taming it is essential,
leading to the joy of well-being.

Dhammapada 35

If you are practising properly it will be difficult. There is no need to feel bad just because you are struggling. This is how it is for everyone who is aware. Remember, it is our habits that make it hard, not reality, not Dhamma. So we regularly resolve to align all aspects of our life with Dhamma. Remember too, the more firm our resolve, the more difficult the practice, so modesty in our ambitions can be a good thing.

With Metta,

Ajahn Munindo
