Stilling the Mind

Stilling the Mind

Stilling the mind is like catching a feather with a fan – the old fashioned hand-held type. Every time you move the fan, the feather is likely to be blown away. It is a delicate business. You have to hold the fan quite still, just beneath the feather’s downward trajectory. You can imagine how difficult, and yet how easy, this task might be!
