T 3.8.4 Be aware of what is happening now. — 2 Comments

  1. A learning from experience, which may save much time and effort.
    This meditation has nothing to do with suppressing the thought process or cutting off the thoughts – far from it, a flow of thoughts is necessary for this meditation.
    The thoughts are allowed to continue without interference. It is the succumbing to involvement in the thought process that is to be vigorously resisted.
    A thought is but one of the internal and external phenomena that is to be witnessed, without succumbing to involvement in the thought process.
    Although mind in it’s natural state, thought-free, has to have been experienced before reaching this meditation, stabilisation in a thought-free state is still to come.

  2. It may be useful at this point to look at the literature and training around Satipaṭṭhāna meditations.

    Also, the “Snap” mentioned can occur whenever one uncouples from the thought process – which becomes progressively easier with practice.
