Continuing our look at Wise Effort

Tuere will be gone Thursday  the 19th, but we will continue to look at Wise Effort. As a reminder, the  four aspects of Wise Effort are to avoid unskillful actions, abandon unskillful actions when they  arise,  cultivate skillful actions, and maintaining skillful actions which have arisen.

As Tuere pointed out last week, these are not necessarily sequential activities, though they can appear that way. More likely is that one or the other is happening at any time. The key is to notice when they happen and pay attention to what is arising.

If you can, notice times this week when you’ve found yourself in one or more of these situations. We’ll have a group discussion about  how we learn to pay attention to the mind states which are arising.

See you Thursday,
Sheila
