If we were to look directly into the heart of every situation, we would immediately recognize what we are attached to in it, and the relative degree of suffering resulting from the attachment. So why don’t we do this? FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN. When we are unable to control a situation, we fear looking inward, and attempt to avoid the feelings such introspection could generate. We seek to avoid that which we do not already see within ourselves. While we are unaware of what may lie within our mind, heart, and body; we are afraid to find out. However, it is only by going inside to feel what is truly there that we can gain the knowledge of it. The solution to our suffering is to look inside, without knowing what is there, and pay attention to whatever we find. This requires courage, and becomes possible with practice. Looking at, thinking, and feeling what is hidden inside of us actually becomes fun, but first we must face the darkness and jump. If we were to look directly into the heart of every situation, we would immediately recognize what we are attached to in it, and the relative degree of suffering resulting from the attachment.
