When We Come To Our Senses
When we come to our senses, no thought is present in that moment; that is pure awareness. When thoughts arise, all we have to do is become aware of one or other of the senses and the thought fades. We don’t follow it!
The point of this is that, when we cut through our thoughts, our habitual patterning and behaviour, we reduce and even eliminate the effects of karma, which are the habitual patterning and behaviour that we cling to.
When we come to our senses, we realise freedom.
The sense commonly used in meditation is the touch of the breath.
