' The Method '...

"The method is directing attention upon attention or awareness.

When any arising is experienced, especially thoughts, moods, emotions, or feeling of personal self identity, one simply notices one’s present naked awareness.

By directing the attention back to awareness, the arising dissolves back into its origin and its essential nature, awareness.

In doing this, the arising releases its formative energy in its dissolution as a surge of further clarity of Clear Light, the power and potency of awareness that energized the arising in the first place.

Hence one’s Awareness presence is enhanced in the collapse of the formative arising.

Hence the Dzogchen comment that ‘the stronger the afflictive emotion upon dissolution, the stronger the enhancement to the clarity of presence’."

(Longchenpa quote from “A Treasure Trove of Scriptural Transmission”. Padma Publications)
