Reading from Class: Buddha’s teaching on the art of living by Goenka

“Buddha taught…just to observe nature as it is by observing the reality inside. Out of ignorance, we keep reacting in ways which harm ourselves and others. But when wisdom arises – the wisdom of observing reality as it is – this habit of reacting falls away. When we cease to react blindly, then we are capable of real action – action proceeding from a balanced mind, a mind which sees and understands the truth. Such action can only be positive, creative, helpful to ourselves and to others.” – S.N. Goenka, “The Art of Living: Vipassana Meditation”

Paraphrased from The Buddha is Still Teaching by Jack Kornfield
