“Let go of every fixation.
.
Ultimately this is a path of release.
.
The mind may attempt to construct itself on any foundation:
.
through attachment to blissful jhanic states;
.
by becoming “the one who lets go”;
.
by being “the meditator who understands change.”
.
Observe and laugh at the antics of the mind.
.
Coax it to release its hold, even its attachment to good things.
.
Uproot any place you find yourself stuck in, whether it be with the pleasures of the tranquil mind of jhana or in the clarity of insight.
.
Resist the urge to keep score of your insights.
.
Assessing your meditation practice only fuels grasping.
.
.
Willingness to let go is indispensable.
.
.
.
.
Every stage of this path requires a complete relinquishment of both the struggles and the delights, pleasant experiences and painful ones.
.
.
.
.
Even the states of samadhi that you diligently cultivate must, in the end, be relinquished.
