"at home in muddy water"

Please continue exploring the  themes of being "at home" (or not being at home) as discussed in a previous blog.

Notice what (or when) you believe there are "muddy water" conditions or circumstances in life? (What and when are there "clear" water conditions or circumstances?)

What makes for a condition/circumstance "being muddy"?

What are your reactions to "muddy"?

Noticing this "muddy", what is being present, awake, at home in this muddy water?

What enables and support you in being present?

What hinders or keeps you from presencing?

What attachments and beliefs arise when sensing/feeling/believing "muddy"?

What/how is practice with these?

What is being at home in the midst of hindrance, in the midst of attachment/beliefs and reactive habits?

Conditions or circumstances include so-called internal or external, body, thought and emotions in various permutations and combinations, and self or other, to list just a few ways we might categorize or name them.
