The process of attending to the mind is so difficult and yet so liberating. When you stop to realize how much conversation you have with yourself throughout a day it’s astounding! I do feel like it’s a bit of constantly counseling yourself to “shut up and stay focused”. It has occurred to me on several occasions today that the public must think I have turrets or am somewhat psychotic. That’s OK. Just working on cleaning the big house…my mind.
Patanjalis’ Yoga Sutra 1>14 as translated by Sri Swami Satchidananda…”..it is not only how long you practice, but with what patience, what earnest and what quality also.”
