Finding true orientation often begins with disorientation from the known. We look for orientation that can take us through birth, aging and death when everything is always changing. It’s Dhamma, the unconditioned, no need to hold on. That’s the ultimate security.
Shifting gears from the fast paced speed of the world we’re invited to take up nutriment for careful attention – yoniso manasikara – to dispel hindrances. Widening the focus of attention and mindfulness of the whole body allows mindfulness and concentration to naturally develop.
Most of the time you might realize that you can’t meditate! This is why we have to go back to the beginning, not just once but repeatedly. Maintaining the field of awareness without getting involved with content is the beginning. Acceptance without adopting.
The Buddha’s teaching is aimed at liberation from suffering – the way out is through complete abandonment of clinging. Basic remedy is to pause – this is just an organic system operating, there’s nothing wrong with you. It’s not personal. Don’t follow the message of mind consciousness, follow the direct experience of the body.
