To see the mind in operation

To penetrate the meanings that mind imposes is challenging, for the patterns that mind has manufactured for so long are prefabricated, ready to be put in place almost instantaneously.

To make this move – to see the mind in operation – we have to sense subtle messages that the mind is steadily sending but never explicitly pronouncing.

These messages have one main theme: the insistent claim that whenever anything at all appears to mind, something else, something substantial, is operating in the background.
