From Passion to Peace by ALLEN, James
 
The first three parts of this book, Passion, Aspiration, and Temptation, represent the common human life, with its passion, pathos, and tragedy. The last three parts, Transcendence, Beatitude, and Peace, represents the Divine Life—calm, wise and beautiful—of the sage and Savior. The middle part, Transmutation, is the transitional stage between the two; it is the alchemic process linking the divine with the human life. Discipline, denial, and renunciation do not constitute the Divine State; t ...

Dharmaseed.org: Ajahn Sucitto's most recent Dharma talks
 
As a monk, I bring a strong commitment, along with the renunciate flavor, to the classic Buddhist teachings. I play with ideas, with humor and a current way of expressing the teachings, but I don't dilute them.Sitting in a field of fifty to eighty people really starts my mind sparking. Since I don't prepare my talks ahead of time, I find myself listening to what I'm saying along with everyone else. This leaves a lot of room for the Dhamma to come up. Just having eighty people listening to me ...

Dvedhāvitakka Sutta The Buddha divides thought into two classes: thoughts of sensual desire, ill will and cruelty; and thoughts of renunciation, non-ill will (mettā) and noncruelty (karuṇā). This discourse states simply that unwholesome thought bring about unhappiness, and wholesome thoughts bring about happiness. Unwholesome thoughts can be replaced by wholesome thoughts (and, even better, a quiet, collected mind). Knowing this, we can bring about happiness and freedom from pain.
