conclusions shut down the ability to observe openly

| Kalaw Retreat Mar 2017 - Day 3 Discussion Group B (49:45-50:23)

The mind has this tendency – it observes a few things and then it wants to make a conclusion to feel like it has learned something.

That shuts down the mind’s ability to see more; so, we need to notice that the mind is making its conclusion and step away from that so that it continues to observe. And it might make another conclusion, and we need to step away from that and again continue to observe.

This helps the mind to keep its doors open.
