with Ajahn Naniko. All sensory events contain a feeling tone (vedana). They are either pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral (neither pleasant nor unpleasant). The neutral is so common, so ordinary and so incapable of grabbing our attention that we rarely attend to it. Instead, we tune out to the quiet, unpretentious, boring sensory events. Yet without noticing the neutral, we bypass an extraordinary opportunity to deeply penetrate our experience and to be a knower of the world.
