One of my teachers was talking about the trail of thoughts that are in constant flow through the human mind and he said to look at the space in between the thoughts. With a few years of practice I am able to see this space between. To be in it, of it. I am still pulled away, but I am able to quickly return. Practice in repetition. Huxley wrote that the human brain is a reducing valve that restricts pure consciousness. I hold this to be true.
