Sometimes the heart feels trapped distracted, or passionately involved with experience. This too changes. Training the citta to know itself releases this.

2022-12-07 Q&A 49:24
Ajahn Amaro
Questions are précised - 00:10 Q1 Can the question you referred to (Who am I?), could be asked during infinite space or nothingness, the 5th jhana? 01:22 Q2 How does this practice help in the extreme scenarios we face in life – like in war - or day to day activities? 12:09 Q3 I really found the receptive aspect of loving kindness helpful and I’m wondering if the other three immeasurables also have this receptive quality? 20:29 Q4 You spoke about the 3 kinds of desire. In my study, I’ve heard that self-grasping / ignorance is the root of all these. Does that idea line up with the three types of desire you speak of? 25:23 Q5 Mingyur Rinchope speaks of a vertical and horizontal “gap” from the stream of thoughts. Does the Thai Forest tradition speak about this gap? 24:16 Q6 Is there much spoken about the “subjective clear, light mind” and “rigpa” in the Southern tradition? 28:48 Q6 What is the state of dreaming and where is consciousness at that time? 34:53 Q7 When ”I” consciousness dissolves, what is that expresses this experience? We have to make a temporary or onlooker self even if there is no self. 42:04 Q8 Don’t you think that organized religions/ traditions fossilize the “I” rather than dissolve it?
