There is no final cure for the body, but the mind can be freed. No matter how much craving, anger, sorrow, fear or obsessive negative thoughts keep storming the mind, don’t let discouragement become another hindrance. Every new moment is a chance to see these hindrances for what they are with pure awareness itself. Patient, courageous and wise, we are ready to receive the gift of ‘bread’ and to win back the boundaries of our hearts. A talk given during a Satipaññā Insight Meditation Toronto (SIMT) week’s retreat at Chapin Mill, Batavia, NY, USA, in 2014.
