2018-12-25 From suffering to ease 48:13
  Jill Shepherd
As the arc of practice develops from releasing suffering, dukkha, towards greater happiness, sukha, we often encounter conditioning that gets in the way of opening to deeper ease and freedom. The brahmavihara practice of mudita, appreciative joy, can be a support for releasing that conditioning.

2018-11-17 18 Brahmavihara Cultivation for a Happy Abiding 47:27
  Ajahn Sucitto
The qualities of goodwill, compassion, gladness and equanimity can be cultivated to generate a subtle form, a subtle state of consciousness. Abiding and lingering in these qualities, citta sustains consciousness in that mode, sees objects in that light, and experiences itself in that light making human life manageable, fruitful, enjoyable.

2018-11-16 17 Intention and Effort 63:58
  Ajahn Sucitto
Take away the track of conditioned intentions – better, more efficient, goal orientation. Learn to sense into the intention of the citta here and now. Effort informed by the spiritual faculties is a means to stave off hindrances. The first right effort is to dwell in what is skillful.

2018-11-16 16 Nothing Works - Get Used to It 61:13
  Ajahn Sucitto
Our conditioning and underlying programs have us aiming at unattainable benchmarks. We come to believe it’s possible to make everything work, make things efficient, clear, comfortable. But this only sets us up for suffering. So we practice to purify intention and attention, widening the range of what our citta can bear with and accommodate. We’re then able to be with the uncomfortable without suffering.
