If you cultivate mindfulness on a regular basis, you almost can’t help discovering that your mind has deep inner resources you hardly knew existed.

Hold the recurrent patterns of both mind and body in the accepting and openhearted embrace of awareness.

With time, we may come to experience an open, spacious quality in our awareness that easily holds whatever is arising in the domain of mind or body … and learn to rest in that awareness itself.

Think of it this way: the mind is to thoughts as the ear is to sounds.
