I am in complete agreement with this no-nonsense, non-mystical
approach. I would just like to add a little bit more about "just
this" which is that it is just this, without clinging. Without
clinging to anything, but especially not clinging to self, views of
self, self in this, this as self, or self as other than this.
The way this dovetails with this thread is that "plain observation"
lets what is in the moment be just what it is, and does not mix
interpretation into it, like milk into flour, where they become
indistinguishable. Where there is interpretation, it is recognized
as interpretation, and left unmixed.
