Where we begin here is with mindfulness of thought. We actually give our full attention to our thoughts and then into a direct experience of the silence and deep stillness within the core of our being. Practice Mindfulness of Thoughts and Stillness like a type of exercise, keeping an open beginner’s mind, free of expectations. Just be interested to notice what happens. You are bound to enjoy it and it will be interesting to be sure! The following quote may be helpful to you as a metaphor to help explain the stillness and movement I am referring to here.
“The mind is like an ocean. And deep in the ocean, beneath the surface, it’s calm and clear. And no matter what the surface conditions are, whether it’s flat or choppy, or even a full gale storm, deep in the ocean it’s tranquil and serene. From the depth of the ocean you can look toward the surface and just notice the activity there, as in the mind, where from the depth of the mind you can look upward toward the waves, the brainwaves at the surface of your mind, where all that activity of mind, thoughts, feelings, sensations, and memories exist. You have the incredible opportunity to just observe those activities at the surface of your mind.” ~ Daniel Siegel’s book, The Mindful Brain.
