mastering the drives

23/07/2009

The motivation is looking for itself. In those sensations themselves is
something very powerful and amazing. However, in order to see this, a
shift has to happen in which the drive becomes driven to understand the
sensations of that drive itself rather than looking to future sensations for
satisfaction. This is a completely unintuitive thing to do, and this is one
reason why meditation practices can seem so awkward sometimes.
However, the fact that the drive or the goal contains its own solution is
the reason why there is such relentless emphasis on being present to
what is happening now. If we can get this drive to just chill on its future
fixation and simply understand itself, insight is close at hand.
