51. Self-Enchantment

In our practice, we are continually drifting in and out of delusion.

The delusion isn’t the intermittent noise; rather, it’s when our attention focuses on a kernel of thought/emotion, and our breathing becomes shallow. It’s a kind of trance state. In response, we throw the breath and attention wide open, unentrancing ourselves.

This learning to fall out of self enchantment is giving life to all things.
