Your mind is subtle and powerful. It responds to every thought or feeling even the unnoticed and apparently insignificant ones.  It helps you perceive your experience and act effectively. It is so close and intimate that you may not notice it. You might even neglect it and assume it will just be there with no need for a conscious relationship. It is like your eyes. You see through them so you do not see them.  You can see that everyone else has eyes but you cannot see your own unless you have a mirror—a way to observe yourself. Meditation is a mirror in which you can see your mind reflected.  

Meditation creates a conscious relationship between you and your mind. Your mind has its own qualities, actions and play. It has a practical structure in its flow of thought and feelings. You are just you; you are not your mind. You are a presence and a witness.

Most of the time, we are simply unaware. We are inattentive or careless and act only on impulse, reaction and automatic habits. Meditation creates a natural relationship between you and your mind. It frees and empowers you. It opens space for your soul and intuition. As a human being you have the right to originate a thought, feeling or intention. You can plant a seed that will mature, express who you are and manifest your intentions. You cannot stop the constant production of thoughts and feelings, but you can align, filter and originate ones with your consciousness to fulfill your purpose. 

Each individual mind has its own tendencies and characteristics shaped by history, environments, genetics and karma. Knowing your mind and accurately recognizing the vast differences between minds is critical for good communication, relationships and success in our life. What flows through your mind? What thoughts, feelings, sensations, intuitions and stories? Where do those thoughts come from? What stimulates them? Can you distinguish an image from a dream, a fantasy, a memory and an intentional thought? How do you react to your own mind and its flow? How does it react to you?

By simply directing your attention you can create a stronger relationship to your mind. Attention is a kind of invitation to your mind to participate with you.  Just as in meeting with a potential friend, you pay attention, listen, and are fully present allow and attend to whatever your mind brings to the meeting. You will quickly recognize its character and characteristics if you stay neutral and present. Once you establish this relationship you can use your mind to understand, analyze, create, express and project. Your friend will help you succeed and fulfill your goals.

The good news is that this can start with as little time and effort as a single conscious breath!
