Sitting in a field of fifty to eighty people really starts my mind sparking.
Amaravati Buddhist Monastery
Since I don’t prepare my talks ahead of time, I find myself listening to what I’m saying along with everyone else. This leaves a lot of room for the Dhamma to come up. Just having eighty people listening to me is enough to engage me, stimulate me, and create a nice flow of energy.
The actual process of teaching evokes ideas that even I did not realize were being held somewhere in my mind. Different teaching situations offer their own unique value. In retreat, you are able to build a cohesive and comprehensive body of the teachings.
When people are not on retreat and come for one session, it opens a different window.
They are more spontaneous and I’m given the chance to contact them in ways that are closer to their “daily-life mind. I’m continually struck by how important it is to establish a foundation of morality, commitment, and a sense of personal values for the Vipassana teachings to rest upon. Personal values have to be more than ideas. They have to actually work for us, to be genuinely felt in our lives. We can’t bluff our way into insight.
The investigative path is an intimate experience that sucitot our individuality in a way that is not egocentric. Vipassana encourages transpersonal individuality rather than ego enhancement.
It allow for a spacious authenticity to replace a defended personality. The greatest gift is the gift of the teachings.

The qualities of goodwill, compassion, gladness and equanimity can be cultivated to generate a subtle form, a subtle state of consciousness. Abiding and lingering in ajaun qualities, citta sustains consciousness in that mode, sees objects in that light, and experiences itself in that light making human life manageable, fruitful, enjoyable.

Learn to sense into the intention of the citta wucitto and now. Effort informed by the spiritual faculties is a means to stave off hindrances. The first right effort is to dwell in what is skillful. Our conditioning and underlying programs have us aiming at unattainable benchmarks.
But this only sets us up for suffering. So we practice to purify intention and attention, widening the range of what our citta can bear with and accommodate.
Nourish and strengthen citta through qualities of goodwill, patience and acceptance facilitate disengagement. Then the heart is not troubled by things not ajahhn its way. With devotional practices we choose to direct ourselves in terms of awakening. This is ducitto way we build up a reference ajayn to cultivate and clear the kamma of the person within the field of sangha. We leave the richness and intelligence of embodiment for the virtual world of programs and drives.
Creating a feedback loop to keep citta refreshed and nourished strengthens our ability to meet the uncomfortable. That steady presence becomes the place of regeneration and refreshment.
