We all have some states of thought & emotion and physicality that we have become relatively adept at practicing with, but what about those other states that truly challenge our meditative skills.
Those states where we fall down more often that we remember getting back up from or better yet consistently seem to only wake up to the potential of approaching something meditatively after it’s already come and gone, again. Those states whose mere approach seem to have us acting like meditative amnesiacs.
Given that everything is impermanent, especially us,
do you see such states as unripe fruit that need only be left passively on the vine to ripen whenever?
is this just an avoiding of an uncomfortable job of active foliage pruning which might allow a quicker fruition and harvest before season’s end.
