"It is typically called cabin fever brought on by cold and icy, snowy weather.  But people are certainly sick of snow.  yesterday we had a flurry of snow pellets yesterday. I was amused but only because it was a freak since the temp was 50f."

This Body of Mine

Phra Ajaan Suwat Suvaco

Confront the body, calm the mind

When meditators' minds have reached genuine happiness in the dhamma through their mindfulness and discernment, clearly seeing the four noble truths, none of them—not one—will revert to looking for happiness in the world or in material things. That's because happiness in the dhamma is a lasting happiness: solid, refined, and genuinely pure. If you compare worldly happiness with the happiness of the dhamma, you'll see that there's not even the least real happiness to it. It offers nothing but stress, nothing but drawbacks. So why do we think it's happiness? Because we're burning with pain. We look to worldly happiness and pleasures to relieve the pain, which then goes away for a while but then comes back again.

In this exclusive conversation, Jungian analyst and mindfulness teacher Polly Young-Eisendrath speaks with Buddhist author Mark Matousek on the importance of friendship for our psychological and spiritual growth. “People don’t give friendship the importance it deserves, especially when they think about how it teaches us to love," says Matousek. "If lovers are depicted face-to-face, deeply in love, then friends should be depicted side-by-side, ready to take on the world together.”
