Learning to ask yourself the right questions, over and over again. Not for the sake of "correct" answers, but for the purpose of discerning the direction (context) that the question REVEALS. The result: unshakeable mindfulness - a context impervious to particular changes in feelings and perceptions WITHIN it.

The practice of mindfulness and wisdom is about developing the ULTIMATE perspective, or CONTEXT, of your existence. Instead of conceiving and conceptualizing thoughts and behaviors, look into discerning the ROOT of them instead --- put them in the fundamental context of DESIRE, AVERSION, and DELUSION or the absence of those.

Suffering is the symptom of an underlying ignorance. Liability to suffering too is a symptom of the same.

An enduring mood can be a basis for the discernment of one's mind and what "state" the mind is in. That's how a person can begin to notice their own mind as a phenomenon that is always present in their experience. That's what "citta nimitta" is.

Mind that is not seen as an arisen, presently enduring, PHENOMENON, is the mind that pressures a person towards unskilful perceptions and actions. Learning how to discern it on its own terms means uprooting the basis for the pressure, without having to change anything else. After that, a person truly becomes incapable of unwholesome.
