The Transition from Sense Reality to Heart Reality

Ajahn Sucitto

The normal ways of the world are to be excited and interested in sensual experiences external to oneself, being drawn to pleasant ones and repelled by those that are unpleasant. This can create a lot of stress, and a constant searching for “What’s next?”. By orienting oneself by a commitment to moral precepts, and a determination to remain present with all that arises, the heart can learn to trust in awareness and find a strength which can allow a lasting happiness to emerge.
