It’s not what you think. Literally…we are not our thoughts. In formal meditation practice we relax into an alert posture and watch as the mind is bombarded by an endless stream of thoughts. We learn that “we don’t have to go to every party we are invited to.” In time, we develop an ability to “see” these thoughts, instead of “be” the thoughts. This leads to a profound sense of peace and and control.
