Our own mind carries us away.
Our thoughts are like unruly children, constantly pulling us here and there.
 This constant pulling is the source of our stress and pain.
Mindfulness is the skill that allows us to watch our thoughts and feelings without being pulled by them.
 Initially in practice all this mental chatter preoccupies us.
Then we begin to realize that we do have control.
By noticing and observing, we stop reacting. We begin to learn, instead, how to RESPOND to these thoughts.
