Skillful Noticing

“When we become skillful at noticing our habits of mind and letting them come and go without disturbing us, we realize that each state of mind, including strong emotions, only lasts for seconds before being replaced by another one.  In this way we cultivate some freedom from the frantic imbalance created by each one.”

~ Darlene Cohen, author and Zen priest,  Finding Joy Amid the Pain
