O.H.M.#18 - Honeyball Sutta translated by Christina Feldman

FRI DEC 04, 2020

O.H.M. is the acronym for Overtures Honoring Mindfulness, a collection of the written word that speaks to my heart, mind & soul.

In the Honeyball Sutta, the Buddha offered a simple and universal formula through which we can understand and trace the moment-to-moment construction of our personal world. This is not an abstract or theoretical formula but can be experientially traced in our experience; it is a process that happens thousands of times in a single day.

What we contact we feel

What we feel we perceive

What we perceive we think about

What we think about we proliferate about

What we proliferate about we dwell upon

What we dwell upon becomes the shape of our mind

The shape of our mind becomes the shape of our world.
