“I’m more aware of how my demons operate. It’s an observation. Meditation is nothing but to observe and concentrate deeply on something. By concentration you get some insight. By just observing. It’s literally observing, from my breathing to what I feel. And by observing it’s like open a window in a dark room. Not until you open the window can you see clearly. Aah, there’s a red chair there. Nothing changed but you see clearly. It is just to be aware what is the furniture that is happening in those dark rooms. When you are aware you are a little more conscious. That consciousness prevents you from acting in an unconscious way. That’s the only difference. It’s such a simple thing and that’s why it’s so effective. It’s just a practice that anyone can do.”
