Meditation can help us to stop believing all the crazy thoughts that rattle around our mind.

Sogyal Rinpoche explains how even amidst the turmoil of our changing thoughts, emotions and fantasies, our fundamental consciousness, this pure awareness, this basic continuum or mind-stream is always with us.

It's interesting that the word for "Buddhist" in Tibetan is nangpa. It means "inside-er": someone who seeks the truth not outside, but within the nature of mind. All the teachings and training in Buddhism are aimed at that one single point: to look into the nature of the mind, and so free us from the fear of death and help us realize the truth of life.

Sogyal Rinpoche, from The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

The last post of this installment comes with a shocking conclusion: photons (light particles) seem to know our mind and act in accordance with our intention!
Meditate on this, I will ...

A great meditator can experience everything and view all the impressions of the senses without getting involved and entangled, without making anything up. The point is how we deal with and react to appearances. ... And Tilopa said to Naropa, 'My son, appearance does not bind you, it's your grasping that binds you.'

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, Daring Steps

"In the ancient meditation instructions, it is said that at the beginning, thoughts will arrive one on top of another, uninterrupted, like a steep mountain waterfall. Gradually, as you perfect meditation, thoughts become like the water in a deep, narrow gorge, then a great river slowly winding its way down to the sea, and finally the mind becomes like a still and placid ocean, ruffled by only the occasional ripple or wave."

Phakchok Rinpoche

“The practice of meditation is a way of unmasking ourselves, our deceptions of all kinds, and also the practice of meditation is a way of bringing out the subtleties of intelligence that exist within us. The experience of meditation sometimes plays the role of playmate; sometimes it plays the role of devil’s advocate, fundamental depression. Sometimes it acts as an encouragement for birth, sometim
es as an encouragement for death. Its moods might be entirely different in different levels and stages of being and emotion, as well as in the experience of different individuals — but fundamentally, according to the Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, there is no doubt, none whatsoever, that mediation is the only way for us to begin on the spiritual path.’”
