Post title:  How continuity enters practice- (a letter to a friend, rethought)

(Nov 20 2011 at 12:07 PM)

 

 

I'm thinking about how continuity enters practice, continuity being really a state of trance or a stream of thought. Question to me is, how does the witness of my attraction to thought enter into my sense of place?- without my intervention, I remind myself. The feeling that attracts me is not mine, the edge of thoughts is not mine, action out of place is not done. Meditation on impermanence, detachment from feeling, cessation, relinquishment- I certainly feel when I'm thinking, waking or falling asleep, and I'm mightily attracted to that ability to feel.
