“Allow experiences to come and go without attempting to influence them.
.
.
Likes and dislikes may arise regarding mind-objects; accept these preferences as just more mind-objects (a general term for any mental content, including perceptions, thoughts, desires, memories, emotions, and so on)
.
.
See that all mind-objects have the same nature: they come and they go.
.
.
Settle into the present moment.
.
.
Drop the past and let go of the future.
.
.
Receive each moment without trying to connect one moment to the next.
.
.
Abide as presence, neither remembering nor planning.
.
.
There is no straining, no seeking for anything.
.
.
Nothing to have, nothing to do, nothing to be.
.
.
Notice the gaps between mind-objects, a palpable way to discern the field of awareness distinct from its contents.
