There is an analogy in Buddhist scripture which compares the mind to an ocean.

Our thoughts are waves that arise from our ocean-like-mind

We sit and watch the waves as they arise out of and back into the ocean.

There is vast potential inside of us – within our mind.? Meditation practice helps us to tap into this potential.

Tight conceptual thoughts block the flow of the ocean like mind – causing stress within and without.

It’s a misunderstanding to think that meditation is a way to try to stop all conceptual thoughts.

Meditation helps us to create a mental environment where our mind can grow and we witness the natural stillness within our mind free from tight conceptual thoughts.

Try this Ocean Mind Meditation to help you accomplish this.
