Ajahn Brahm talks about the power of the mind and how the mind can be further empowered for the benefit and happiness of ourselves and those around us. Meditation is a way of feeding and strengthening the mind, not just in this life but for many lives.
The problem these days is that people know how to feed the body and keep it healthy, but don’t know how to feed the mind. People have material wealth but lack happiness and inner well-being. This is why it is so important that we seek to develop our minds so that we know how to overcome the inner obstacles and find inner happiness.
