Awakening to the Way Things Are
1988-05-09 Awakening to the Way Things Are 63:27
Ajahn Sucitto
We were all born with the capacity to be aware – this is the reflective mind. It has to be cultivated or it becomes distorted. Mindfulness of body and breathing helps slow the mind down so it can reflect, recognize that experience is conditioned, arising dependent upon circumstance. When mind awakens to the way things actually are, one touches the deathless.
