Clever Presence: A Direct Hit!
The 4 Foundations of Awareness:
Only if & when the Noble Friend remains regarding any Body -own or other-
simply as a heaped up group, just as a transient, compounded & complex form,
only as a fragile, an accumulated & alien assemblage, while being alert, aware &
clearly comprehending, then will he thereby effectively remove all urge &
frustration from this world…!!!
Only if & when a Noble Friend dwells observing any Feeling –from within or
from without – simply as affective (over-)reaction, just an assigned response,
only as a fleeting sensation, while being keen, fully conscious & continuously
attentive, then will he thereby consequently eliminate all desire & discontent
within this world…!!!
Only if & when a Noble Friend abides viewing any Mood –present or remote-
simply as a fancy thought, just as a made up mentality, only a conscious moment,
while being ready, actively investigating & deliberately discriminating, then will
he thereby naturally eradicate all longing & sadness inherent in this world…!!!
Only if & when a Noble Friend lives interpreting any Phenomenon –internal or external –
simply as a passing mental state, just as a mentally created & conditioned construct,
only as a experienced appearance, merely as an imaginary reflected imprint,
while being acutely awake, mindful & carefully understanding, then will he thereby
overcome all attraction & repulsion rooted in this world…!!!
A Direct Hit:
Without any even single exception:
Whoever in the distant & ancient past has Awakened to full Enlightenment;
Whoever in the present, right now is Awakening to complete Enlightenment;
Whoever in the near & far future will Awaken to perfect Enlightenment;
All those have been freed, is being freed, will be freed through & by:
Initiating, Cultivating & thoroughly Establishing these 4 Foundations of Awareness!
The single & sole cause of really Being Present…!!!
