Know content and discontent, be aware of like and dislike. Know appearance and know transcendence.

A practicer of the Dhamma must be like this wherever he goes. Others can’t tell you, you must know for yourself. Sammā-ditthi, right view, must be there. The practice must be like this for every one of us. To do the real practice like this for even one month out of five or ten rains retreats would be rare.

Our sense organs must be constantly working. Know content and discontent, be aware of like and dislike. Know appearance and know transcendence. The apparent and the transcendent must be realized simultaneously. Good and evil must be seen as co-existent, arising together. This is the fruit of the Dhamma practice.
