“When we say that the mind goes here or there, it’s not really the mind that goes. Only concepts go. Concepts are like shadows of the mind. If the body is still, how will its shadow move? The awareness that forms the present: that’s the true mind. The awareness that goes chasing after concepts is just a shadow. Real awareness – ‘knowing’ – stays in place. It doesn’t stand, walk, come, or go”.~ Ajahn Lee
