It may seem frustrating to sit there and try to follow your breath as your mind pummels you with thoughts. But noticing that, and returning to the breath again and again, helps you build the skill of being outside those thoughts—being above the waves. It just takes time and practice and patience.


Your discursive mind has had decades to convince you that it is the center of your awareness. You will start to have glimpses where you see that is not the case, and over time those glimpses can coalesce into longer moments that allow you to be more of who you are. Or at least that is the idea. I’m still working on it. All the time…
