We need relaxation so we can rest our body speech and mind in its natural states. Not always strive to get things to be a certain way in order to feel good about our selves and others. We need to dissolve the conditions that perpetuate our suffering not create more conditions for similar neurotic patterns to arise again and again. Its essential to understand that all our experience of life arises in specific ways because of determined causes and conditions coming together to produce those specific results which manifests as our daily experience of life.
We need to take responsibility for whatever we are going through as its our personal story or interpretation of the information thats coming in thru the senses that makes it our own particular personal experience.
your creating your own life-so you can recreate it as well in a more positive way that can support your path to awakening.
So I think I will continue with the teachings on the 6 Bardos as this includes Shamatha as well as Vipassana. Also it introduces you to working with whatever arises in life as your practice. Dream Yoga, the Dying process and how to utilize the different stages of this dissolution of the gross and subtle elements at the time of dying. What happens after death, the appearances of Dharmata and the process of Becoming or preparing to take on the appearances of our next life so to speak. It's a really rich and extensive teaching covering the whole life cycle and how to work with the changing appearances. Unless we see the emptiness of these appearances we can never be free love to you all AZ
