Do not try to know the experience better

| Spirit Rock 2015 Retreat 2015-04/27 Group A Session One (53:19-54:18)

I’m beseeching you not to attempt to see the object more clearly; please do not try to know the experience better.

Because when a little craving comes in, everything becomes tighter. Actually, the more relaxed and open the awareness is, the stronger it actually is. The more simple and honest the mind is in the present moment, the clearer everything will become.

Why is the mind not simple? Because it is wanting something; or the mind is not wanting something.
