Chasing the moon ðŸŒ™

Leave your front and back door open. Allow your thoughts to come and go. Just don’t serve them tea – Shunryu Suzuki

This is a useful way to describe meditation. Don’t attach to ideas as they enter your head. Don’t ignore them, acknowledge them, but then let them go. The more you let go, the less anxious you become about emptying your head. When your thoughts linger you mind acts like a porch light at night that attracts insects. Ideas like moths and bugs will be drawn to you and buzz around your head. Turn off the light and be still. Let the moths chase the real moon instead.
