We open to what is happening in each moment and discover how we prevent life from being fluid and flexible. We sit and we notice where our attention lands. What catches it? Where does it cling? Is there grasping? We learn to direct our attention, moving it toward and away from objects. This kind of focus brings insight into how we shut down the flow of experience and cause ourselves suffering. We learn to open to greater freedom. for me, questioning started at a young age.
