Dissolute

I’ve been developing the impression that my formal practice is scattered and dissolute lately. It had gotten to the point where I feel I have to acknowledge it and come up with a plan to spend my time on the cushion more wisely. As a result, for the next thirty days I am making the aditthana to spend the morning session issuing Ajahn Achalo’s Foundation Metra practice (found on Insight Timer) during the morning and his meditation on holding the whole world with metta at night. It will be interesting to see what, if anything, feels different and how my behavior changes if at all. 

Confession of Fault

Yesterday I was overcome by sensual craving and acted on it. May I learn from my failures and take steps not to repeat them.
