Chain of Consequences !
- Friends:Freedom of Awareness or Prison of Neglect:When awareness & clear comprehension are absent,conscience & fear of blame are consequently lost...Why so ? Because the actor is unaware of own action,other actors, the scene, the act & what is right to do!When conscience, shame & fear of blame are absent,control over the senses, is consequently lost...Why so ? Because sensuality then autonomously searchpleasurable objects, however detrimental they may be!When control over the senses are absent, the morality ofright & advantageous behaviour, is consequently lost...Why so ? Because when the pleasurable yet detrimentalobject is found, it is utilised enabling the fall (ex. drugs!)When right, moral & advantageous behaviour is absent,the absorption into concentration, is consequently lost...Why so ? Because remorse & regrets keep distracting themind & blocking the serene bliss that enables absorption.When absorption into concentration is absent, the directknowing & seeing how it really develops, is consequently lost...Why so ? Because concentrated absorption is a prerequisitefor penetration into the cause, rise & decay of all phenomena.When knowing & seeing how it really develops is absent,the arising of dispassioned disgust, is consequently lost...Why so ? Because knowing & seeing how all is neither lasting,satisfactory nor 'I-me-mine-self' induces detached disgust.When dispassioned disgust is absent, the direct experienceof the Freedom caused by mental Release is consequently lost...Why so ? Because of attachment & clinging, caused by craving,the internal bars of the mental prison remain unbroken. Thismental bondage of addiction disables all Mental Freedom...Establishment of Continual Awareness & clear Comprehension istherefore the Crucial Only Way (Ekayana Magga) all have to passin their struggle towards absolute Freedom.
