Via Daily Dharma / November 18, 2016: Cutting Through a Clouded Mind

Much of the time our mind is thick, with thoughts and emotions and cognitive content, but when focused on the breath or on some other object it narrows, gets sharper and more precise, and is increasingly capable of becoming aware of just that thin sliver of experience presenting itself in the present moment.

—Andrew Olendzki, "Giving Pain the Slip"
