DAILY SIT :: MARCH 2021
March 01: Overview of Right Concentration
Humbly acknowledging that we are beginners in this territory.
March 02: Samadhi
As Ajahn Sucitto reminds us, “Samadhi (concentration) is pure enjoyment.” And it’s arising is predicated on contentment, ease, and a heart resting in the goodness of living an ethically attuned life.
March 08: Exploring Momentary Concentration -- Kanaka Samadhi
Hummingbird Attention vs. Honey Bee Savoring
March 09: Emphasizing the Importance of Tranquility
Getting the heart involved early and often.
March 11: The Calming, Steadying, & Soothing of Samadhi
We CREATE a stable foundation and then, ADJUST the aperture of attention to Calm, Soothe, and Regulate the nervous system. This is essential for meditation practice and for daily life!!!
March 15: Sammasati
With sati--a soft, warm, receptive, and interested knowing presence--we arouse mindfulness which then reveals the true nature of experience and liberates the heart-mind from craving.
March 16: Exploring the Move from Concentration to Mindfulness
What was once a distraction now is noticed and welcomed as the next moment of experience.
March 18: Right Mindfulness--Wholistic Caring Attention
Mindfulness is actually a type of Attention, a holistic way of attending, that SEES, FEELS, UNDERSTANDS & RESPONDS skillfully to what is happening.
March 22: Exploring the Word ‘Ardent” With Respect to Mindfulness
Emphasizing ‘wholehearted’ or ‘sincere’ rather than ‘intense’ or “fierce’
March 23: The Functions of Mindfulness & Concentration
Both are kinds of attention that are used as we practice mindfulness meditation. Concentration practices steady, calm & soothe. Mindfulness practices holistically attend and respond skillfully, with an eye for non-harm and wellbeing.
March 25: The Meditative Moves of Mindfulness
Mindfulness ---Sees, Feels, Understands and Responds Skillfully--- to what is happening in the present.
March 26: Happy Anniversary!
One year ago today the Daily sit was born, out of necessity, and continues today out of love. Thank you all for your practice!
March 29: Bringing Clear Comprehension Into Daily Life
Bringing more choice to what we do and how we do it.
March 30: Re-appearance of Mindfulness
Meeting the disappearance and reappearance of mindfulness with gratitude and kindness creates an inner atmosphere in the heart-mind that is pleasurable and leads to mindfulness arising with more frequency.
