Example text

The Buddha keeps reminding us to be observant, and to be mindful in all areas of our life, of all our actions and thoughts – all of them, the good and bad. He doesn’t ask us to judge what we experience, or reject those that are painful. He doesn’t ask us to do that. Wisdom itself knows this – without pushing anything away or holding on to anything. This is the Middle Way, the path of non-grasping, nonclinging. It is the end of ‘la grande illusion’. Here: Ma¯ra, Sparklers, and the Heart Ajahn Tha¯niya¯ from a Dhamma talk given during a retreat at IMS in Barre, Massachusetts, USA (April 2002) Ajahn Tha¯niya¯ was born in 1960 in New Zealand’s King Country.

So rather than just being present with what is arising, and responding skilfully: ‘Oh, there’s aversion; aversion feels like this,’ there’s contraction around the doubt, and a not wanting around the contraction, and the whole thing Feelings: Beyond Good and Bad 33 becomes a mess. It solidifies. We are far away from the present moment because we have identified with the feeling, without really watching what is happening. We feel disconnected; we cannot hear anything except the rattling of reaction on top of reaction.

And nothing else needs to be going on. This is the quality of the Buddha knowing the Dhamma. Here: Ma¯ ra, Sparklers, and the Heart 61 Then we can start checking out for ourselves what helps us to do that. What helps us to come to a place of refuge? For those of us gathered here, we understand that sila is the first thing. It does matter how we live. We really taste the fruits of our life when we sit in meditation. We see that when we aspire to live well, it means we can be more and more present with experience.
