At some point does your practice seem to become too complex for your own good?
I've had periods like that, not sure what to concentrate on, not having a clear focus, too many questions. What works for me is simplifying, finding what works, sticking with one approach for a while.
And not thinking so much!
In addition to Buddhism surely buddhists can talk about other topics. I just went & got a cup of coffee & made it iced coffee & I'm having a fabulous day / I would like to hear people's opinions on Buddhist human beings dating. Monastic life does Not interest me. Surely this forum online isn't just to talk about Buddhism. Every conversation I've ever had with another human being has more than one topic. Can we talk about art work? Theatre? Movies? Careers?
I like talking about ice-cream.
when we grab (like) one, we reject (dislike) all other, in one thought moment
this is happening to us all the time, unless we are mindful with wisdom
Yes, the trick is realising that we don't have to follow through on all these craving and aversions, and they usually don't last that long.
Mine is paying attention, and particularly noticing change. The challenge is remembering to do it consistently. Noticing stuff can be fascinating and revealing.
I do like simple, my brain begins to hurt when things get complicated.
