Just FYI I completely disagree with jonjohn's diagnosis and approach. I think it is an excellent idea to do a retreat if you feel trapped by the worldly life. Having nothing worth comming back to, when entering a retreat, has worked for me by providing quite a lot of motivation. It promotes the at least three among the five strengths: conviction, persistence, mindfulness, concentration, and discernment.Of course different things work for different people and it could be that the above "just rest" or "just let go" or whatever approach is the best for you. E.g. one can assume that it works well for jonjohn since he is promoting it (although sometimes people just repeat pretty-sounding discourse without actual direct knowledge). Only you can figure out what is best for you, and that figuring out usually requires lots of trial and error.I just wanted to let you know so you don't think that opinions expressed on this board are somehow unanimous. What happens is that oftentimes people present what has worked for them as if it was the best solution for everybody, so they sound more certain than they really ought to.
