Saṅkhāra points out that in every moment of life there is a phenomena in attention and atmosphere of attention that is shaping it. This happens on a retreat and in the whole of our life. Is our meditation practice of deep listening and skilful cultivation only useful on the ‘cushion’ or is it a tool for awakening in very moment of life?

Exploring wisdom ways of looking to bring insight into our practice, where paying attention is the key. Seeing the inconstancy in all things opens the possibility for greater sensitivity. Seeing the rating of all things by the enjoyment or distress they might offer as just an opinion, rather than fact, opens the possibility of more ease and delight.

Being present is an essential component of the Dharma path. It feels good to bring body, heart, mind, attention, consciousness, all together in the present moment. But being present is not the goal of the Dharma. (Guided meditation and Dharma reflection from Gaia House's Online Dharma Hall)
