16 Jul It is very difficult to obtain a human life – don't waste it! (evening)
We've played enough - let's start to open our eyes, Where will we go after death?, What are the Four Kinds of People?, Training this body – do you want to go through it again?
15 Jul We spend most of our life on 'autopilot' (evening)
We do like to make ourselves unhappy, Why do we associate with things which are anicca and anatta?, Don't say 'I am afraid' – say 'There is fear', How much compassion do we really feel for sick people?, We are centred on ourselves – we are selfish, One can be happy with very little
15 Jul Mindfulness and sati – are they the same? (midday)
Awareness is the key, Dealing with unresolved issues arising in meditation, Meditating only when it is pleasant is hardly meditation, Metta is there in the heart, We DO have a choice!,
15 Jul Don't be the slaves of your desires – get free! (morning)
Why do we need to beautify this body?, Buddhism is a religion which points inwards, The more possessions we have – the 'bigger' we think we are, Samatha meditation is like digging a hole
14 Jul It is our right to be happy – so why aren't we? (evening)
We run and run and run... How can we stop?, Once you've been out of this body – you never want to come back, Where is dukkha coming from – desire!
14 Jul Using asubha to deal with sexual desire (midday)
Learning to walk wasn't easy – why should learning to meditate be otherwise?, Learn to do walking meditation, Our object of meditation – be interested in it, We are running after pleasant things and trying to avoid unpleasant things, Sexual misconduct – number one sin
14 Jul How to meditate – finding your heart (morning)
Getting the mind calm takes months of relentless effort, Meditation is nothing else than learning to walk, All we are doing is waiting for death, All the work we put into the body – in the end in vain
13 Jul The cycle of birth and death – like one video game after another
Get to know yourself, Open your heart to all possibilities
