Different winds come from all directions. Some are clear, some carry dust,
some are cold or hot, fierce gales or gentle breezes. In the same way
sensations arise in the body... continue...

vertical line When one splits happiness and sadness it seems logical to desire one above another while missing the point that each is part in the same process.

vertical line That is precisely it, no preference, simply what is, as it is. I am not clear why you describe it as mouldy. I am aware that when I am attached to a frame of reference, that many preferences arise. Yet if you observe long enough, a frame of reference can change and along with, any preference. They become less tangible, fleeting and less fearful if relinquished, but frightening to lose before relinquishment.

vertical line i say mouldy as in written long ago. and I only reproduce those words. if one has preference apart from the serface effects of causing suffering when things don't go our way and for that matter when they dfo go our way!!!

there is a darker side, with preference comes bias with bias come directed decisions and thinking and samsara, deep samsara which is very difficult to notice or and drop. which is why the mouldy ones say have no preference without explanation or justification because these things (and what I write now also) only serve to bury us deeper into the entanglement.

I found just accepting the wisdom works well, notice, then drop. and the next thing as is will be. even if it is not :-)

Yes, yes, far better to say Wisdom works well when you notice and drop. I try over and over to point to a squirrel in the yard but my dog does not look at the squirrel, he looks at my finger. I forget that the prime directive of Zen is to not interfere. I am not sure if it was I in Zen study or Mahamidra study but advice is given to disown ones thoughts. It is not so much a process of negating the thinking process though this does occur, but rather of relinquishing thoughts as they go up or down, so that they may rise or fall, but you do not.
