Summary 3

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness.

1. Sensory input
2. Feelings (pleasant, unpleasant, neutral)
3. Mind: 3a. Thinking 3b. Mind-states
4. Conditionings

All phenomena that appear can be classified, named or noted, under one of these categories. One does this while keeping the foundation for at least a couple of moments. Strong conditioning is often caused by ‘coalitions’ of feelings and thoughts/mind-states. Distangeling this coalition helps domesticating the conditioning.
