The constant factor that accompanies all mental states and activities is awareness- the ground of citta. Citta gets conditioned by sankhara of intention, attention and contact. Widening past these we return to awareness.
The world of Nature touches us & teaches us how to relate to ourselves as humans rather than socialized citizens. Integrating this can take us beyond our relations and stuck states to hold our lives in the light of Truth.
Ariyan realization is of moving beyond the personal identity. This is a step into vulnerability. Through meditation training we learn to ‘touch the ground’ -purity of intention- where the person can’t go.
