    Greetings Don, I think you and I are making a very interesting connection here in which we can discover and amplify the process of “thawing” or “unfreezing” attention. I hear you on your thoughts about practice and technique. I would add classical Sufi stories as another “technique”. These techniques all can easily “freeze” attention and just as easily “thaw” attention.

    As a sidelight, many years ago, I attended in person Krishnamurti’s Ojai talks. No doubt about it, he led the audience to an encounter with wholeness though, at the time, I was unable to understand the pattern well enough to move freely within it. Still, I realize as I am writing this that the encounter was essential to the metamorphosis that people are seeking.
