3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
My training doesn't mean I am free of low moods or disappointments, but they are considerably eased by depriving them of the fuel of thought. In my case, negative chains of thought can be set off very easily by innocuous things like a newspaper headline, particularly if I'm in a low mood.
Some thoughts, whatever my mood, are just always negative, estranged family members being a case in point. Any thought devoted to them just angers or distresses me. However, even pleasant or bland thought can distract me from full consciousness. Random thought is like mud from the bottom of a lake clouding the clear water.
Once you've had the experience of "super-consciousness", you want to be in it all the time. In quiet spaces, I can now quiet my mind qiuckly and easily. I now want to expand that ability into other situations, like social interactions and travelling, my reactions guided not by thought but intuition. I am already well down the road to liberation from fear and suffering, and it's now a case of eliminating their footholds that come from random thought.

9. THE WISDOM I'VE LEARNED FROM OTHERS
"Meditation does not belong to any religion, and meditation is not a belief. It is a pure science of the inner. Learning to be silent, learning to be watchful, learning to be a witness; learning that you are not the mind, but something beyond --the consciousness -- will prepare you to receive truth." - Osho
