Making the shift from the activities of daily life into something much quieter, we learn to recognize and encourage the qualities of citta – knowingness, sensitivity, resonance. Smooth out the wrinkles of details that catch our attention and sustain a wide, open focus that includes the range of circumstances and emotions that arise. This is a blessing and a refuge, our true home.
Instructions for sustaining a wide, soft awareness that includes it all. Aware of the background, aware of the details, the stillness, the movement – let things be as they are. Let citta learn from its own fluidity.
