Example text

Once training in mindful calm abiding has tam ed and pacified the cascade of thoughts, inner images, and emotions, m ind’s aware­ ness that is aware of itself can emerge on its own accord. In this sense, m om ents of clarity arise naturally. Yet, similarly as presented in the context of the experiences of joy, a practitioner might distort genuine m om ents of clarity as well, trying to create them artificially. This distor­ tion happens when you are attached to short m om ents of clarity and from then onward yearn to repeat such m om ents in your mind.

Experiences of emptiness genuine or artificial? W hat holds true for joy and clarity also applies to experiences of emptiness, which is just another term for the true nature of mind. As m entioned above, in its unaware m ode our m ind is not aware of itself, not to m e n ­ tion m ind’s awareness of its actual nature. It is for this reason that everything that surfaces within the m ind - thoughts, inner images, and em otions - is taken to be as real and last­ ing as the seemingly outer world of experi­ ences that we are interacting with constantly.

Thus, based on understanding the nature of objects of perception we develop an u nd er­ standing of the more subtle processes of m ind which can furtherm ore be looked at from two perspectives. First, a practitioner should becom e aware of the fact that thoughts and em otions arise and subside in the mind, one following an ­ other, in a constant flow of m om ents with 25 - Boundless A w akening - each one distinct from the last. For example: try to count the num ber of thoughts that oc­ cur in sixty seconds and observe how m any thoughts, impulses, m om ents of perception arise and subside during this period of time.
