Goodwill – Giving Yourself Back to Yourself
2017-06-13 Goodwill – Giving Yourself Back to Yourself 67:57
Ajahn Sucitto
Goodwill isn’t about changing things, but bringing up the right atmosphere and steeping your awareness in that. The right atmosphere isn’t 100% approval or love or celebration, but a quality of granting permission. Non-resistance, non-aversion. Experiences of exclusion and being treated as an object cause the citta to close down over time, and we lose the ability to feel anything. Subjective presence will give yourself back to yourself.
