How should we attend to the senses?

December 12, 2020 0

All of these senses are happening constantly. There is not much we can do about it. In fact, they’re just there.

Though we can skillfully develop awareness. Awareness that is open, that is accepting and that is not focusing on any particular one, but simply accepting reality as it comes.

 Sometimes, there might be more a predominant touching sensation, a predominant hearing sensation, a predominant smell, or whatever it may be. The important thing is that we remain within awareness. That means; making sure that we are not grasping at the experience, or pushing it away, but the experience rather is happening yathā-bhūta; as it is.

Without having an opinion, a judgment, without criticizing it, but accepting it, welcoming it for the better, for the worse. Whether it’s a good or a bad experience simply staying with a steady mind, a joyful steady awareness, with whatever vehicle of meditation that you are cultivating at this point.
