Although we rely on our mind in every aspect of our lives, the mind itself is rarely the focus of our interest and attention. Meditation is a simple yet profound way to get to know our mind. We might well find that our mind is not what we think it is. When the mind is disregarded there is always so much to do to maintain our sense of self in the world. However, when we attend to our mind as it is we find relaxation, warmth and relationship, the ground of freedom which allows the blossoming of compassion for ourselves and others.
