Seeing the mind clearly.
Here’s a quote I enjoy, but I don’t remember where it came from. Let me know if you recognize it.
“So many people say that they cannot meditate because they cannot quiet their mind. But it has nothing to do with quieting the mind. It has to do with stepping back and seeing the mind clearly. That takes all the pressure off. We don't have to make something happen; all we need to do is take a moment to enjoy becoming aware of how our mind works, whatever it is doing.”
I would only add that once you start figuring out how the minds really works, make sure you bring along plenty of good ol’ self-compassion!
