The Buddha taught that becoming identified with "wanting mind" obscures our true nature and binds us in suffering. This talk explores a wise attitude in relating to desire, and offers three pathways towards freedom: Mindfulness of "wanting mind," trancing back desire to its source, and radical non-clinging.
We get pulled away from ourselves in different ways. This talk explores both the mechanisms of how we get disconnected from being present, and how come those mechanisms exert such a powerful pull on our consciousness. The exploration encourages a careful and caring investigation of those obstacles, as the way to understand, and liberate them.
