From Gil Fronsdal, Oct. 20, 2018: Samatha & Vipassana
Be the custodian of [your awareness]. Care for it well. Don’t let others dictate where your awareness goes. Don’t let advertisements, don’t let politicians, don’t let the messages of society somehow become the default of what you focus on, what you pay attention to, and what you think about…. And be very careful that your attention goes to things that feed and develop that which is best in you, that which is wholesome and beneficial, that which is good for you.
Don’t give your power away….
