Sounds like you're being troubled with aversion to "liking". Just be mindful of the Sukka and how it arises.


you cant have aversion to liking, thats like saying you have an aversion towards hate or an aversion to an alligator bite.
nothing can destroy a man who has lived a pure life

Agree with the second half. I DO have an aversion towards hate.
Therein what are 'six (types of) disrespect'? One dwells without respect, without deference for the Teacher; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Teaching; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Order; one dwells without respect, without deference for the precepts; one dwells without respect, without deference for heedfulness; one dwells without respect, without deference for hospitality. These are six (types of) disrespect.
