We spend our lives running away from what we don't like and holding on to what we like. But in reality this is a recipe that ultimately makes us unhappy because, willy-nilly, we have no control over external events. What we love is by its nature non-permanent and like all things, it is born, lives and dies, while what we hate sometimes parks itself in our existence and remains stationary for too long. Here is the nature of suffering, but here is also the 'cure'.

We can and must teach our minds that we can live with everything that happens to us and that this is the key to peace and well-being. With meditation, suffering begins to emerge and people who start practicing find that in reality the symptoms they wanted to heal from get 'aggravated' and they regret thinking that meditation doesn't work or isn't for them. Instead, it's just the opposite.

With practice, the suffering of being, which we repress with continuous distractions, begins to emerge and show itself, because we become aware of it. The aim is not to get rid of these unpleasant or painful sensations but to make friends with them. It is one of the most difficult things but it is also the bravest path and whoever undertakes it is rewarded beyond all expectations. Vipassana insight (clear vision of reality as it truly is and not as a mental construction) develops wisdom, not an intellectual wisdom, but an intuitive wisdom that the mind cannot understand at the cognitive level.

A wisdom that over time breaks those ancient patterns that keep us trapped. Meditation books are an invaluable resource but they cannot replace pillow practice because they describe other people's experiences. Your best teacher will always be your practice.

Payment for the course is an important aspect of meditation. The decision to put a cost was long and difficult after years of teachings offered by donation as per Buddhist tradition.

First, it recognizes the practice work done by the teacher. To teach meditation it is not enough to read and study, it is essential to have practiced intensively for years and years. Before taking a mindfulness course here or elsewhere, ask where and how much a teacher has practiced, don't stop at university degrees which count for relatively little in this field.

But, payment is also a fundamental aspect for one's practice. It is an 'internal' fact that profoundly concerns the pact that is made between oneself and the intention to meditate in a disciplined, assiduous and serious way. During the course, difficulties and resistances will arise, it is part of the process. If there hasn't been an initial contract with yourself in which you are committed to moving forward, it will be easier to throw in the towel instead of facing difficulties courageously.

The gratuitousness or donation, through which the practice spreads in Buddhist countries, does not take root in a Western materialistic culture where there is a tendency not to give importance to free things or "little". I have personally verified for years that whoever came by making a small donation, apart from exceptional and rare cases, has actually progressed very little.

In some particular situations, this payment can be personalized taking into account the real economic conditions of the person so that the practice is accessible to all. Having said that, starting a path of mental clarity with a deception towards those who offer these teachings means starting with a deception towards yourself, it is better to do something else.
