Looking Closely

I have made the aditthana to sit for exactly a half hour every morning and fifteen minutes each night inspired by one of Ven. Thanissaro’s essays on Right Action. more, I have made such determinations previously but, qualitatively, I feel this time is somewhat different.

In essence, rather than pushing a technique before hand and simply forcing myself through the period I want to continue to look more closely at the mind as I find it in the moment I come to sit. Doing so I can choose the approach that seems most adroit and then proceed accordingly. So far this technique has produced good results and, frankly, it’s no surprise given that it is an exercise in clear comprehension.
