It’s important to understand insight.
We create a mindful state to allow insight to arise. It arises from the unconditioned, immortal, unborn, unformed part of our mind and by its very nature escapes definition. Insight creates wisdom, it allows our mind to see what is otherwise hidden. Therefore it is an important skill to develop.
Good posture allows deeper breathing.
Deeper breathing calms the body.
As the body calms so does the emotions.
As the emotions calm so does the mind.
By focusing on our breathing this develops our sensitivity and focuses the mind.
This opens a portal into the unconditioned, immortal, wordless mind.
This allows insight to arise.
It’s a skill well worth developing.
