|Definitions||One of the three core attention skills, the ability to allow sensory experience to come and go without push and pull.
Can be developed through a range of methods, such as noticing when it happens spontaneously, dropping judgments, intentionally relaxing, non-interference, anchoring attention away, noticing disappearances, creating or collapsing distance between yourself and a focus object (through zooming, being the witness, etc.), or accessing a positive emotional state, such as gratitude, compassion, etc.
Foreground/Background: You may be focusing directly on a sensory experience or you may be allowing a sensory experience to come and go freely in the background.
Deep Equanimity: A way to talk about transcendence. There is so little friction in the sensory system that sensory experience of form is completely effortless, spontaneous, and non-separate, and sensory awareness of no form is so complete, there is not even light.
