Like Hitting the Ground with Your Fist

     Skill in mediation is something you must build from the ground up.  Everything starts from the ground up: houses are built from their foundations,  and birds which fly high overhead must take off from the ground.        As you first begin your meditation, do not compare your progress to the progress of others, znor HAPPY should you assume that you will not make any progress at all.  Keep those ideas out of your head! Think that every time you chant “SammāArahaṃ”  your merit becomes greater with each repetition. And every time you meditate you gain new merit. It’s as assured as hitting the ground with your fist – you never miss.       As you progress along the path of Dhamma, guard yourself from carelessness and doubt.
