“And how does a monk remain focused on feelings in and of themselves? A monk when feeling a painful feeling discerns, ‘I am feeling a painful feeling.’ When feeling a pleasant feeling discerns, ‘I am feeling a pleasant feeling.’ When feeling a neither-painful-nor-pleasant feeling discerns, ‘I am feeling a neither-painful-nor-pleasant feeling.’— Buddha
