If you sit down, hold very still and ask “what is moving?” with the motivation to see the truth for yourself and a willingness to not know, then anything that arises is exactly what you need to see.
We are conditioned to think some things are true and some are false, but your ideas about what is arising are ALWAYS a projection. When anger starts to arise, if you add any kind of story at all, you perpetuate the negativity. If you believe something is true you validate it. If you disbelieve it, you are trying to get rid of what is arising. You don’t have to believe or disbelieve anything. This path is about being genuine.
Look closely at your mind and see what authority is and you see that there really isn’t any authority. That’s how you get your own authority.
Elaboration covers up what you are looking at. If you really see what you are looking at the ego mind will freak out because it won’t know what to do next.
Really listening means you don’t know what you are hearing. If you think you know what somethings is you are ignoring what is right in front of you.
