Seeing Our Thoughts and Impulses Arise and Dissolve

In meditation we don’t follow our projections off the cushion and out of the room. We have some discipline.

Normally, if we’re visualizing chocolate ice cream or getting angry, we might go to the refrigerator or yell at our friend.

But when we’re meditating we won’t get fat and we won’t get in a fight. We just see our thoughts and impulses arise and dissolve and for the moment we are not creating any further karma.
