the mathematics of wisdom

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:

Clarity equals

a calm mind

over time.

 

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.
