The theory of mindfulness meditation is that it will help you settle your mind.
By doing this practice you develop a certain kind of clarity because your mind is not zooming around quite so much. You can develop a certain strength in your mind, a sort of mindfulness muscle.
With mindfulness you’re able to be present a little more easily and you develop stability so that every thought doesn’t drag you out of the room — hostile thoughts don’t drag you out of the room, sexual thoughts don’t drag you out of the room, ice-cream thoughts don’t drag you out of the room. You’re able to abide with whatever arises in your mind.
