Coming Back Home to Awareness
In this talk Ajahn Viradhammo encourages us to see how conditions can be held in awareness. When anger goes out to an external object there is always an internal experience where this intention arises. Awareness hold this space of the mind moving outward. By quoting Ajahn Dune Atulo’s inverse order of the Four Noble Truths, he expresses how we can come home to awareness:
The mind sent outside is the origination of suffering.
The result of the mind sent outside is suffering.
The mind seeing the mind is the path.
The result of the mind seeing the mind is the cessation of suffering.
From: Gifts He Left Behind, trans. by Ajahn Geoff
