The Spell Is Broken

Disenchantment (nibbida) is the next link in the chain of Transcendent Dependent Arising. When the Calm (passaddhi) and Contented (sukkha) mind becomes Stable enough (samadhi) to really See and Understand the Fundamental Nature of Things (yathabhuta…), then the illusion of our everyday world can finally be seen through…and the spell is broken.

What illusion?

The illusion that there is anything at all that is unchanging, that can provide lasting satisfaction, or that has an eternal essence that is its “self.”

Which sounds like really bad news.

But it’s not!

Stay tuned.
