Because these techniques are, like most challenging things, much easier to perform when one is in an echo chamber.
They key to the success of these, and other similar techniques, is to practice them in the middle of daily challenge. Greed is easy to conquer in a monastery, but not so much when you’re surrounded by desirable stuff. Discipline is easy in the cloister, but what about when there are MANY other options besides the disciplined one? Courage is easy when there’s nothing to fear.
When these things arise, we have to corral the greed, the lack of discipline, and the fear… because those things are not only unnecessary, but they’re detrimental to growth.
