Once I first entered the monasteries in Thailand and Burma, I used to be taught all the pieces is anicca (impermanent), dukkha (unsatisfactory), and anatta (no-self). The explanation these had been repeated time and again is as a result of if you happen to see these, you see with the eyes of knowledge. As a result of all the pieces is altering, the extra you cling and maintain on, the extra you endure.
To free ourselves, we have to quiet the thoughts by way of mindfulness in meditation. Then, as a substitute of figuring out with the altering situations, we be taught to launch them and switch towards consciousness itself, to relaxation within the understanding. My instructor Ajahn Chah referred to as this pure consciousness, “the unique thoughts,” or resting in “the one who is aware of.” We be taught to belief pure consciousness itself. This is likely one of the methods Ajahn Chah taught about liberation. Awakening is at all times right here and now. Practising this fashion, your life is remodeled.
