Simplicity

Yesterday while talking to a Dhamma friend at the Dana for Ven. Thanissaro I realized something about my practice: unless I work on getting the mind to fix and settle down on a single point the rest of it is pointless.

So, in pursuit of that aim I make the aditthana to stay with one object die the first 30 minutes of every session, doggedly pursuing it until I achieve singleness of preoccupation or the bell sounds.
