"And what is the miracle of telepathy? There is the case where a monk reads the minds..mental events..thoughts..ponderings of other beings, and individuals, [saying,] 'Such is your thinking, here is where your thinking is, thus is your mind.'"Then someone who has faith..conviction in him sees him reading the minds... of other beings... He reports this to someone who has no faith and no conviction, telling him, 'Isn't it awesome..astounding,..great the prowess of this contemplative. Just now I saw him reading the minds... of other beings...'"Then the person without faith..conviction, would say to the person with faith and conviction: 'Sir, there is a charm called the Manika charm by which the monk read the minds... of other beings...' What do you think, Kevatta — isn't that what the man without faith, without conviction, would say to the man with faith and with conviction?""Yes, lord. ""Seeing this drawback to the mirale of telepathy, Kevatta, I feel horrfied,..disgusted with the miracle of telepathy."
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah
