“Nothing Else Matters but the Method”
The teaching that thoughts liberate or free themselves is a foundation meditation teaching. During meditation instruction, one is reminded that meditation begins with relaxing the body. A calm relaxed body allows for a clear, unruffled mind. The function of the mind is to think. If one does not follow one’s “monkey” or “chattering” mind, one will realize that he or she is drifting away from the method and return to it.
