Working with Delusion on the Path to Mindfulness

Working with Delusion on the Path to Mindfulness

Both regret and remorse are vital processes that were spoken about quite often in the early suttas.

Take some time to reflect and inquire into what you experience as you reflect on the actions, thoughts and words that are present now, those that have contributed to current mind (yours and others), heart and body and then to continue our mindfulness practice to investigate and recognize what the result of these present moment actions are.
