Satipatthana Sutta, Third Foundation: Dividing the Mind Through Aversion
2011-02-22 Satipatthana Sutta, Third Foundation: Dividing the Mind Through Aversion 57:47
Rodney Smith
Aversion and desire work together to entrap the mind within its own projections and divide the whole into parts. The opposite of what I desire is feared and visa versa. Because the mind is a single whole, when we pit what we like against what we do not, repetitive aversive and desiring images noisily dance through the mind in opposition to the contentment of the abiding wholeness.
