- Hi All
Feel like sharing my sudden thoughts in the d-l list here.
Sometimes I wonder, abt the need to accumulate panna. I thought it is a
natural process with right understanding. When there is a need, would
there sounds a "self" is involved. Likewise when we say we develop kusala
and prevent akusala, is there a "self" involved. Seeing reality as it is
does not entails one to be concerned abt kusala and akusala (even though
they are impt). To me it is looking at this precious moment be it our
thought kusala and akusala. To me that doesn't mean that when we are in
kusala thoughts, we should not investigate it. All thoughts should be
seen or investigate be it kusala or akusala. Too strong intention of
developing kusala, then to me there is a danger of attaching a "kusala
Just my sudden thoughts

Feeling, if you mean vedanaa, also arises with cittas that take concepts as
objects, doesn't it?

Citta only must to arise and subside more rapidly than does the subsequent
conceptualization in order to make the conceptualization seem unbroken, I
think--somewhat like the individual frames of a movie or pixels of a cathode
ray tube seeming to make an unbroken moving picutre.
