Being free from concepts is like going backstage in a theater and suddenly realizing how much of our engagement with the drama has come from mere appearances.

Thoughts that come to us are mental events that naturally arise, stay for a while, and then fade of their own accord.

Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally to things as they are.
