When you see with wisdom

“Recognizing these three characteristics (impermanence, unreliable and not self) is called seeing with wisdom.
.
.
.
When you see with wisdom, you replace your former infatuation with sensory experience with an attention that is markedly disenchanted.
.
.
.
This is an important distinction for the meditation practitioner to perceive.
.
You do not practice disenchantment.
.
.
You practice clear seeing; disenchantment naturally ensues.
.
.
When you see with wisdom, the deluded view that seeks gratification through the senses ends.
.
The connection with the senses continues, but it is altered by this perspective of disenchantment.
.
Observing the fragile qualities of existence, you become disenchanted with conditioned things as a foundation for happiness.
.
When you recognize that fleeting phenomena are not under your control, your enchantment with self-grasping ceases.
.
When you perceive clearly, you discover a liberating disenchantment.
.

This transformation constitutes insight.”
