The way toward liberation is to train yourself to live in the present
without wanting to become anything. Give up becoming this or that,
live without cravings, and experience...
IF NOTHING IS FOUND THERE TO DELIGHT IN,...
The Buddha once said this to the Bhikkhus: "Bhikkhus, as to the source through which perceptions and notions tinged by mental proliferation beset a man: if nothing is found there to delight in, welcome and hold to, this is the end of the underlying tendency to lust, of the underlying tendency to aversion, of the underlying tendency to views, of the underlying tendency to doubt, of the underlying tendendy to conceit, of the underlying tendency to desire for being, of the underlying tendency to ignorance; this is the end of resorting to rods and weapons, of quarrels, brawls, disputes, recrimination, malice and false speech; here these evil unwholesome states cease without remainder."
From "Madhupindika Sutta" of the Buddha translated by Bhikkhu Nanamoli and Bhikkhu Bodhi
