“Thinking is the natural activity of the mind. Meditation is not about stopping your thoughts/emotions Meditation is simply a process of resting the mind in its natural state, which is open to and naturally aware of thoughts, emotions and sensations as they occur”
Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
In meditation there are many approaches we can use to working with Emotion. First, through observing our mind in an open, allowing way, we get to know our thoughts and emotions. By observing we can see clearly that thought/ emotion isn’t solid. We don’t have to be scared of them or enamored by them and we definitely don’t have to believe them to be true! We have no freedom when we slavishly follow our thought and emotion creating story-lines , believing it all to be true. This results in getting worked up and stressed. In this way we lose our peace of mind, our equilibrium. When we deeply know this in every cell of our body we can experience true peace of mind.
