你是以这样的心情在探索佛法的:什么样是更高明的寻乐方法?

……

受念住它的原理,它的内在的逻辑就是这样子,透过了解你怎么样在寻乐,透过去观察、去理解、去享受那种高的品质的乐,然后使得你能够用越来越有效率、越来越省力的方法,得到越来越大程度、越来越长久的满足感。

然后在这样的过程里面,你会慢慢地趋入、了解到,真正最大的快乐,它跟你复杂的计划是无关的,跟你用力的‘抓’是无关的。真正最高的快乐,它是跟放下,它是跟省力,它是跟遂顺真理,是跟遂顺你的心的本质有关的。

This is the attitude that you take when exploring the Dharma: what is the better way to find happiness?

This is the principle, the inner logic of Vedananupassana satipatthana (Mindfulness of feelings): by understanding how you are seeking happiness, by going through the process of observing, understanding, and enjoying that higher quality of happiness, then you will be able to gain a growing degree and more and more lasting satisfaction, in an increasingly efficient and effortless way.

And during this process, you will slowly come to understand that the greatest happiness has nothing to do with your complicated plannings, nor with your hard ‘grasping’. The highest happiness has to do with letting go, with effortlessness, with surrendering to the truth, to the nature of the heart.
