What is true in ecology is true in this heart-mind: the fire suppression makes fire worse.
I’m clinging so hard, there’s no mindfulness. That’s the wildfire out of control, taking what it will take. I don’t have to wait for the fire out of control to incinerate that to which I cling.
What does it mean to prescribe a burn within this heart-mind? Burning the fuel that the wildfire will take, maybe that means mindfully facing our fears, transforming our fears, mindfully facing that to which we cling, mindfully facing and transforming greed, hatred, and delusion.
