Flow

January 25, 2016

We begin to develop the power of our minds through concentration, through one-pointedness. Following the breath, we develop the capacity to put the mind on one thought and keep it there and let everything else flow by. We don’t stop our minds. We let them flow. But we bring one thought constantly to the surface. We keep coming back to one thought all the time. Breathing in, breathing out. Breathing in, breathing out. Rising, falling. We note breathing in, breathing out. A one-pointed mind is free of the intellect. It is a supple, useful mind.

(Ram Dass, Grist for the Mill)
