Ajahn Pasanno reflects on our extraordinarily good conditions as well as the nature of the mind to pick up habits, thoughts, moods, feelings, and perceptions. When we go to pick up a thought or a mood, is it wholesome or is it just another piece of rubbish? Reflecting on our good fortune and our desire to pick up what is wholesome and skillful, if we are going to go about picking things up, why not try picking up generosity and kindness? This talk was offered at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery on March 16th, 2013.
