I began today’s meditation by reviewing the eight worldly concerns once more.

Most of them will die with me. Resources, respect, pleasure and praise die when I do. Reputation could, I suppose, live on after me, but I cannot benefit from it. To all intents and purposes, the eight worldly concerns die when I do. They are completely pointless.

Instead I decided that the ability to have perfect control of my mind is the only concern I need to have.

I focused on the feeling of having completely perfect concentration. I felt my concentration focus in single pointed concentration, mixed with all phenomena.


May all living beings come to be concerned with their control of their minds.

Practice in the Meditation Break

I will try to keep the thought to control my mind as my main concern.
