“Mindfulness accepts as its focus of inquiry whatever arises in one’s field of awareness, no matter how disturbing or painful it might be. One neither seeks nor expects to find some greater truth lurking behind the veil of appearances. What appears and how you respond to it: that alone is what matters.” — Stephen Batchelor, Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist

  1. Great quote. In my meditation practice, I quickly learned to let go of the idea of some mystical truth fairy landing on the top of my head to announce I’ve just won Spiritual Power Ball. 🙂

  2. That is a great quote! Many times when I am meditating the ideas that appear in my field of awareness have to do with what to have for dinner or that I have dry cleaning to pick up! 🙂
