Teacher: Rodney Smith

Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Ask yourself who you must become before you can find the contentment needed to ride the ox home. Be honest in this questioning. What qualities of character, what skills and talents would allow you to feel more complete with yourself? The answers to these questions will determine the direction of your spiritual and worldly lives. This week watch how self-discontentment drives your actions. What is the emotion behind the discontentment? What are the self-beliefs operating within that emotion? (“I’m not there yet; I need to be acknowledged; I must be better in this area.”) Discontentment propels the mind into being somebody. Offer yourself a thorough self-assessment. Is there personal or historical pain that needs more attention and examination? What activities would help you in this area (therapy, investigation, meditation, etc.)?
