"Samsara: The human condition's heartbreaking inability to sustain contentment." Elizabeth Gilbert, 'Eat, Pray, Love'.

Simplify: 17 into 1 WILL go: Mindfulness!

Quieta movere magna merces videbatur. (Sallust, c.86-c.35 BC)
Translation: Just to stir things up seemed a good reward in itself. ;)

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

"it has a logic that one can see for oneself without having to believe others."

I take this to mean that one can perceive logically how something might be true and that there is a readily apparent way of finding out directly for oneself.

Basically, if the Dhamma is conveyed to an individual in such a way as to appear to that person as something totally illogical and therefore perceived as something that person cannot act upon, then the Dhamma has not been conveyed.

Just a thought

We are unlikely to proceed without an element of Saddha. But I dont think that sig precludes that.
My reading is that at some point with perseverance Saddha has its fruits, but that simply introjecting the Saddha of another will short circuit that process and leave one marooned with a belief system.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
