  • October 4th 2020Liberation Now: From the Progressive Path to Direct Experience
    In a progressive path approach to practice, we sometimes fall for the idea that liberation is in the future.
    We are conditioned to believe that we must end thinking, master practices, meditate for years, and purify our minds. Without realizing it, our beliefs maintain the conditioning that stands in the way of our direct realization. 
    Rather than turning the attention outward to various objects of practice--mantras, counting the breath, focusing on sound--what changes when we cultivate our effortless capacity to rest the attention in Awareness? 
    What changes as we practice inquiry into the nature of consciousness? 
    And how might this approach to practice support our recognition of what’s inherent rather than feed our conditioned tendency to strive?
