Exploring the Senses

We had a simple evening of meditation looking a bit closer at our 5 senses. Dharmashalin suggested three reasons we might do this. Firstly as a strategy to draw our attention away from obsessive or compulsive thoughts. Secondly as a route to finding more subtle and self-sustaining sources of pleasure. Thirdly as a stepping stone to wisdom. By being more curious and intimate with our senses we step away from simply labeling them and open into a more mysterious unfolding opening experience.
