The mind has the nature to remain status quo, not that it is lazy but rather without inquiry, it clings on to what is. Like a ball, without being kick, will remain where it is. Where it is may not necessary be a pleasant state. Some people just remains where they are, though they complaint how painful it is.
When you open up to self-inquiry, look out for what’s in for me – you can be sure there is a self-benefit somewhere that makes you stay where you are.
