- Suffering is the state of mind that regards itself as real and the Buddha saw the reality that we are bewildered and suffering because we take ourselves so seriously.
- Meditation is more than just sitting formally by yourself in a quiet room. It is noticing the condition of your mind in any circumstance. It is becoming aware of the spontaneous uprising of life in each moment.
- This is a more visual approach to the previous meditation. Imagine your mind as a clear blue sky, and each thought as a passing cloud. Simply let each thought-cloud drift across your view, without your judging or otherwise positively engaging with it. Just observe - again, for five to ten minutes.
