You are not the mind

Concentration, meditation, and learning to direct the mind according to your own will, prove that you are not your mind. Can the mind control itself, or does it need some higher power to control it? This leads you to realize that you are separate from the mind, otherwise how can you master it? It is you, the real you that is directing the mind. The ability to focus the mind or stop its activities in accordance with your willpower awakens the understanding that you are not your mind, and this is a great step toward self-realization.

Jon Kabot-Zinn presents Wherever You Go, There You Are

Jon Kabot-Zinn presents Wherever You Go, There You Are | Human Condition | Scoop.it

Kabat-Zinn - It's brutally simple. Not simple-minded, but brutally simple, but it's also not easy. And I want to emphasize that it's not easy. And it's not for everyone. You've got to be willing to actually be something of an athlete of your own consciousness, so to speak.
