All teachings that surround meditation have one clear purpose, which is getting to know the mind. Why? The Buddha would say that the source of our suffering is to be discovered within the mind. If we’re feeling stressed or worried, it originated in the mind. If we are overcome with grief, this suffering is produced by the mind. Conversely, if we are in love, or enraptured with joy, that experience arose from the mind.

Getting to know the mind is perhaps the most reliable path to freedom. It will not change the ups and downs of life, those are inevitable, but it will produce the freedom to choose our response to them… this is the purest freedom! Let’s get to know the mind.
