Sometimes it was during the breaks that the real meditation happened – moments when it was obvious that wisdom is not something you have, but a wavelength you tune into.
The mathematics of wisdom:
a calm mind
Learning to leave his mind in meditation could be compared to snorkelling, which is breathing with his face under water. Which is just wrong!
It had taken a lot of time and nagging for his brain to get used to snorkelling – to drop all the doubt and questions. To relax and just breathe.
Learning to leave his mind in meditation was a similar challenge. Whenever there was a gap in his thoughts, when a space opened up, to resist the temptation to immediately fill it up.
To relax and just breathe.
