2015-12-20 Seven Freedom Lights 32:17
The Buddha gave us seven factors of enlightenment to brighten and polish the mind. Three of these factors are dynamic - they are the spiritual skills that help us to remove obstacles, make the path smooth, and allow us to practice forgiveness and compassion.  These in turn give rise to the four brightening enlightenment factors which wash out the defilements and enable us to move towards freedom.

2015-12-20 Virtue Goes Full Circle 30:11
Virtue creates a force in the heart, a field of goodness, from generosity to joy to enlightenment and back again. Once there is joy in the heart, the mind finds ease to go to its depths. Be your own doctor, self-examine, see with the inner eye to discern and resolve our inner dis-ease and free the mind. Dukkha is not the problem, it is our teacher.
