For most people, the mind is a rickety contraption assembled from to-do lists, intimations of the sublime, petty gripes, and thoughts of the next meal. Some say, ‘But the ordinary person has no mindfulness!’ They’re really talking about ‘confused mind.’ Ordinary mind is basic, clear, and natural.
Stay clear. We might think it counterintuitive to not constantly be planning a next move, but truly it clouds our best focus.
Grateful to proceed one day at a time.
