Mindful Experience – Pure and Simple
Much of the stress, struggle, stain and suffering of our life relates to our mind’s unskillful identification with physical or mental experience; creating, conditioning and compounding an identity. That identity or ego-I, continues to need to be feed and fuelled, serviced and supplied with ongoing mental-physical experience to be sustained. This is the ‘my-making’, ‘I-making’, ‘me-making’, that is both tiring and taxing of precious time and energy.
Our Insight – Vipassana Meditation practice through the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, helps the mind to see this process of identification and identity happening and then not be so caught up and caught out by this. This is the path and practice towards Peace and Freedom.
My verse below points to the practice of Satipatthana Vipassana.
MINDFUL EXPERIENCE – PURE AND SIMPLE
The practice of Satipatthana – the Foundations of Mindfulness, is proposed and purposed;
Towards mindfulness; noticing and noting the minds ignorant cycle of ‘mental self-making’;
Through its identification with Body Experience, Feeling Experience, Mental States and Mental Objects;
And through Insight-Wisdom bring this cycle to cessation!
What then remains is mindful ‘Now Knowing Awareness’ – Pure and Simple;
Which may or might make mindful use of the conceived ‘self-concept’;
As a useful relational referencing tool when and where needed or required;
For healthy mind-body-life functioning.
When the mind continues to sense and see through the “I” and not with just the eye;
We propagate and perpetuate a lie, that causes the lessening and loss;
Of fundamental mind freedom that is the foundation;
Of all ‘knowing-experience’.
