I just recently returned from a ten day Silent retreat in California. It was very transformational. I am still integrating all the insights I received and all the new ways of seeing that is being experienced still. The short story of the seeing is
1. Having awareness of the mind.
2. seeing it move out of the present moment into something it wants or something it has an aversion to.
3. attempting to remain in a place of equanimity, rather than allowing the mind to run off in either direction, which includes likes and dislikes, even judgments and opinions.
4. remember it all is transitional.
It sounds quite simple and there is a depth to it, but this is the short version, and unless one really looks and sees their own mind for themselves, it does little to make a difference.
Just want to say it is recommended.
