Observant

A nice mini-motivational speech to support a mindfulness practice. By Sam Harris:


“One of the most mysterious things about the mind is the inordinate power of thoughts. Recognized for what they are, thoughts appear to be literally without force, but unrecognized, they seem to totally define the contours of our mind. There is a paradox here, that we must keep surmounting: You are not who you think you are, but if you aren’t observant of your thoughts, you are condemned to be who you think you are.”
