Mindfulness as a practice begins with bare attention to sense – contact, establishing safety, ground and balance. Breathing trains us in terms of proper attunement. This non-grasping awareness gives fruition in the Four Noble Truths.
The 5 indriya arise from the grounded citta – they lead the meditation process. Without these we unnecessarily re-activate samsaric processes: perfectionism, projection, self-criticism. Get on the right track!
Our awareness touches and responds. To set it in line with Dhamma, we use the occasion to bring forth, to offer heart – so that it can open. This is Dhamma practice, Sangha is the human individual quality of our subsequent endeavor.
Citta moves through Kamma, not through space-time. It is triggered by ‘old Kamma’ – perceptions, attitudes, personality programs. It keeps recreating these unless there is direct insight – the Kamma that ends Kamma.
