According to Mark W. Muesse, a professor at Rhodes College in Memphis TN, and a lecturer for The Learning Co., that is the very first insight of Vipassana Meditation. It is seems so simple not to follow a thought, just watch its entrance and observe its exit without offering it a seat, some coffee and a cookie. Maybe because simple is a quality associated with clarity and erroneously associated with easy. We grow impatient when mindfulness is not routine and effortless, even with daily consistent practice. Does Enlightenment mark the cessation of effort, or is it the wholehearted embracing of effort? I am beginning to understand that for me the benefit of asana practice is waking up from the delusion that effort is unpleasant. Today the last poses before closing were unexpectedly harder than usual, but I was not disappointed by the amount of effort I was giving them. I was actually impressed and happy not to have checked out, hoping the next pose would be a lesser hassle. I was satisfied that I had engaged all thrusters (haha), giving it all I had.
