Resolve yourselves

So resolve yourselves.

It’s not just by sitting with your eyes closed that you develop wisdom.
Eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind are constantly with us,
so be constantly alert.

Study constantly.
Seeing trees or animals can all be occasions for study.
Bring it all inwards.
See clearly within your own heart.
If some sensation makes impact on the heart,
witness it clearly for yourself, don’t simply disregard it.

Whenever we feel that we are definitely right,
so much so that we refuse to open up to anything or anybody else,
right there we are wrong.
It becomes wrong view.
When suffering arises,
where does it arise from?
The cause is wrong view, the fruit of that being suffering.
If it was right view it wouldn’t cause suffering.
