    Dharma in real life

    Good Morning Forum, I was randomly watching YouTube talks last night and came across this very recent Noble Eightfold Path workshop from Ajahn Brahmali & Bhante Bodhidhaja , I was most impressed with both in their explanation and especially the way they relate the teachings to real life.

    Video was chosen at random -

    Just to relate my uptake from this talk, yet again the value of intentions gleams at me like a blossoming flower. In the past I had bad intentions or should I say greedy intentions,
    Well, I could sit here just thinking and getting depressed at my failure to see this truth, but the possibility of changing my Intentions is here and now, a mental rebirth is possible in any moment, whatever was done is past, whatever lies ahead is unknown, but if my intentions are wholesome then from this moment forth, I have changed my ways, or the way I think about things, with this observation comes a sense of relief that I can be a better ethical person.
