The more it fades, the more we are willing to experience the fear that created it in the first place. For many years, practice is about strengthening the observer. Eventually, we’re willing to do what comes up next, without resistance, and the observer fades. We don’t need the observer anymore; we can be life itself. When that process is complete, one is fully realized, a buddha—though I haven’t met anyone for whom the process is complete. Sitting is like our daily lives: what comes up as we sit will be the thinking that we want to cling to, our chief feature.
Maybe it’s because right now everything seems to be going my way. That could be. Sometimes things do go our way. We may be in the middle of a wonderful new relationship. The new job is still exciting. But there is a difference between things going our way and true joy. Suppose we are in the middle of one of those nice periods when we have a good relationship or a good job, and it’s just great. What’s the difference between that good feeling, which is based on circumstances, and joy? How would we know?
If it stops, it stops. Both are joy. Because we want to cling to pleasure and push away pain, however, we develop an escape strategy. When something unpleasant happens to us as children, we develop a system—a chief feature for coping with unpleasantness—and live our life out of that instead of seeing it as it is. The Baseboard In ordinary life we all carry around what we can call an imaginary baseboard: an electrical baseboard that jolts us whenever we encounter what feels like a problem. We can imagine it with millions of outlets, all within our reach.
