Winter Retreat morning dhamma reflection recorded on 27th March 2021.
Conditioned by ignorance, we can end up concocting the very scenarios we feel trapped in. The citta leaves its own centre and gets stuck in conditions. Samādhi gives us the possibility of disengaging from the tangles, and allowing wisdom to be directed to the heart of the problem – ignorance and outflows. This directed wisdom can dismantle the box we unconsciously create for ourselves.

|It’s a natural inclination for citta not to suffer, but it’s confused, it needs to be trained. Citta can turn away from the tangles of ignorance towards signs that produce ease. Training with nimbleness and flexibility, citta becomes grounded, stable, not easily knocked over, easily handling what comes its way.|

|Citta jumps and rushes towards experience it thinks will bring security. It’s a compulsion, an addiction. But citta can turn, starting with disengagement, then stabilizing and calming. Settle into the happiness of these effects, and you have a good foundation to eliminate the irrational drives and compulsions that cause suffering.|
