We are here, on the mountain, with a tremendous view. Let the breath speak to us. Stay and watch, even the suffering, investigate patiently like a parent, even if their child objects and runs away – patiently keep trying, be receptive, be available. Gently soften, mellow, give the mind back to the moment, trust, receive it and discover its hidden truths. A guided meditation and reflections given at the Heart of Wisdom Retreat, Insight Meditation Society, Massachusetts, USA in 2019.
