2019-05-05 Open the Heart to the Beautiful and Good 1:17:50
  Ajahn Sucitto
Cultivate the quality of intention rather than objects of attention. Intention is broader, it encompasses everything. Correct intention neither holds on, nor resists. The quality of anukampā – primary sympathy – from which mettā arises. Puja acts as an emblem, it resonates meanings that open the heart. Beyond the physical body or personal state, rise up to the sign of the beautiful, worthy, admirable and the good.

2019-05-05 Standing Meditation: Balance and Alignment Enable Letting Go 41:38
  Ajahn Sucitto
A guided meditation to establish a balanced upright posture upon which the rest of the body can relax and let go. It may not do so quickly, so be patient with how the body actually is, always attending with a mind of sympathy and goodwill.

2019-05-05 Intention Is Primary, Attention Is Secondary 51:41
  Ajahn Sucitto
Attention forms a focus that is by definition, only a part of the whole field (especially the visual focus). So if a ‘watchful’ focus is making your practice tense and try, relax attention and cultivate intention – it covers it all. Intention has a certain motivation, it steers attention. The intention for freedom from stress and pain is what citta is looking for.

2019-05-04 Notes on Ānāpānasati 40:06
  Ajahn Sucitto
Referring to the text, see what’s not there – there’s no mention of one-pointed attention. This is a common misunderstanding. Consider instead a one-pointed intention, to bear in mind, and return again and again to the process of breathing.

2019-05-04 Finding Common Ground Metta 33:05
  La Sarmiento
From my teacher Thea Elijah, through establishing our connection to the earth, we create common ground upon which we realize our interconnectedness. This meditation guides us through this process so that we can offer lovingkindness to ourselves, a beloved, a neutral person, a difficult person, and all beings.
