Dear Open Heart Project,

Hello, I hope you are well and finding some more space and calm in your life.

Today, I share some thoughts on the 8th step on the noble eightfold path, Right Concentration. I find this has much more to do with flow than anything else. Please have a listen and let me know what you think.

In this series, we have discussed Right View, Right Intention, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort and Right Mindfulness. We have arrived at step eight, Right Concentration. If you’d like to visit all the steps together to review, you can find them here.

I’ve so enjoyed connecting with you on these wonderful topics and look forward to continuing.

Love, Susan

    Thank you Susan for the reminder to not give up. As the year winds down, my energy winds down, a family death also brings the reminder of endings. I also enjoyed being in Sangha for the first time this year.

    For me “Right Concentration”, Seems to be Attained when there is Equilbrium in my Life, You Mentioned Flow , When all that is My Being is in a State of Balance Then “Right Concentration” Appears To Move Through my Being in An Almost Natural Way. Thats Not to Say That at Times I Need to Recenter Myself, Usually With The Breath, and Some Mindful Meditation !! Namaste, and May You Have a Peaceful, and Joyous Holiday Season !!
