Yogi: When I check my attitude while observing bodily pain, the practice becomes smooth.
Sayadaw: Yes, you can observe any object if you have the right attitude.
Whatever you do, check your mind and attitude first – if your attitude is right, whatever you do is good. Conversely, if the attitude is wrong, everything becomes a problem.
Right attitude (wisdom) is the most important thing in everything we do – it should be the leader.
