Supporting steadiness, openness, and dedication in our practice. Via a spread and open awareness that is intentionally receiving–inviting–the present body sensations into the spacious awareness. Our dedication is to stay steady with it, and to re-open and re-invite, when our attention, naturally, moves away. All of this is done with a gentle atmosphere of metta–kindness.
Talk in Hebrew, about how experience is fabricated. Particularly by the way of relating of 'firing the second arrow' of 'dukkha' towards what is difficult, and how we can find a more appropriate and liberating response via a 'metta' way of relating.
We look for safety and stability in a level of experience that cannot provide it, that’s the source of agitation. In meditation we practice the ability to sustain ungrasping attention around a thought, feeling, situation, and particularly unpleasant feeling. The content will constantly shift, but the relationship to them, awareness, can become the source of stability. *Sutta reference is SN2:17.
