  • The meaning of mindfulness and living in the present moment
  • Refuting that a thing that exists by it’s own nature is what is in the process of arising
  • What can you point to that is in the process of arising?
  • What has not arisen and what has already arisen cannot be what is in the process of arising
  • If a future object is permanent and non-existent, how does the future object come into being?
  • Dependently arising activities are like a magician’s illusions
