Excerpt About Inquiry
Welcoming Whatever is PresentAnd so you continue to inquire into your experience. And inquiry does not necessarily mean you have to do something or ask a specific question. It is more like observing with curiosity, “I am feeling thick. I am so thick that I don’t even know what is going on. Who knows what this is? I really don’t like it. I wish I weren’t thick.” All of this is included in the inquiry. So if you recognize that you really don’t like it, that you’d rather feel delicate and fine, you are recognizing some kind of resistance that might be part of the thickness. That is okay, too. Everything needs to be included. Whatever it is, welcome it, embrace it. And that doesn't mean that you need to love it. It is understandable that you don’t like feeling thick. But not liking it is not the same thing as pushing against it, trying to get rid of it, or judging it.
