If you’ve got an itchy head, would you scratch your bum? Ajahn Brahm explains that one of the elements of the spiritual path is the attention and wisdom to recognise where and when you have a problem and thereby directing your efforts in that area – rather than the wrong area – in order to get a the right result. And ultimately we need to recognise the causes of happiness and suffering within ourselves, rather than blaming others for our problems.
