Excellent article!

Perhaps it deserves a sticky in Beginners Buddhism under Mindfullness?
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

Fantastic article. Concise yet exactly what is needed.

Since E-Sangha shut down, and since the temple classes are off for a season, I've drifted so far from my regular practice and really need stuff like this to recentre me. Sometimes the simplest things are the most profound.  :pray:

I was at a group meditation about a week ago, and we talked alot about mindfulness and how to use it to control emotional responses from simple annoyance to outright anger and hate.  Many members seemed to be combining mindful awareness with the Hua-tau (maybe I spelled it wrong), asking "who is this that is angry/sad/ hurt" (add emotional response of your choice).  It was working for many folks, and it has worked for me in the past.  In the moment, it can really defuse a great deal of explosive responses, recalling the situations later on the cushion in the same manner, with a calmer mind, can lead to rather profound realizations.

Yes, mindfulness makes some "space", allowing for choices to be made.
