Sam Harris: "Mindfulness is about recognizing that you need not be a hostage to your thoughts. In the default state of mind, it’s as though you’ve been kidnapped by the most boring person on earth and forced to listen to a maniac talk at you all day long. Literally, the conversation starts the moment you wake up and doesn’t end until you fall helplessly asleep at night. Mindfulness offers an alternative to this, but it takes some training to acquire this skill. If you can recognize a thought as a thought, if you can step back and just notice thoughts as mere appearances in consciousness, then you’re free."
