Blunt Force Truth: People who say to silence the mind are full of shit. The harder you push back on it, the more it’s going to push back. Allow the mind and the ego to do their thing. Meditation happens in the background. It’s like turning on the heater in your house. You don’t have to start a fire and blow it through the ducts. You just flip the switch and it happens while you do what you’re gonna do. Your awareness isn’t required. So let your mind do it’s thing! Whatever that is will be perfect for you.
