Finding escape

I find myself doing different forms of mini-inquiries these days.

Waking up, I noticed an impulse to escape some sensations and images that came up. I explored what was here, and a question came to me.

Feel the sensations. Does these sensations want to escape?

Look at the image. Does that image want to escape?

Look at the words. Does those words want to escape?

And so on, with whatever is here. Taking time with each. Slow it down. See what’s really here.

All the sensations that seem associated with avoidance, do they actually want to escape?

If the sensation could speak, what would it say?

What does the sensation want?

The answer now is “to be felt”.
