It Just Needs to Ripen

“Wisdom is in you, just like the sweet ripe mango is already in a young green one.” — Ajahn Chah

The quote for today is from a wonderful new book I’ve been reading by Kittisaro and Thanissara, who I’m going to be sitting with in South Africa for the month of January. The book is called Listening to the Heart: A Contemplative Journey to Engaged Buddhism.

I’m only on chapter 4, but already I want to recommend it to everyone! Here’s what Phillip Moffitt has to say: “Listening to the Heart is three books in one. It’s a guide to deep understanding of Buddhist dharma, an explanation of psychological growth, and a love story.” (Twenty years ago Kittisaro and Thanissara were monastics, but now they are husband and wife!)
