We sometimes find ourselves in pretty dark corners, with lots of thoughts whirling around. Sad thoughts, depressed thoughts, dark fictions, we may play these home made movies or choose not to pick them up and leave them on the mental shelve. In fact, we have a lot of sweeping to do everyday, not just the house cleaning, but we also have to pay attention to the mind and sweep these thoughts, seeing in them what they actually are: a simple and natural activity of the mind. If we believe in them, they might appear so real that they will generate strong and disturbing emotional responses. So the trick is to practice sweeping. And the thoughts will come back just like dust do sttle down again after a while. You can't give up the sweeping. Even if you are familiar with your original face, even if you are often caught by the still state and enjoy this boundless open space, thoughts do come back. But beware! Sweeping doesn't have to be done in a very serious, over focused and rigid way, it is rather with a light touch, like fanning. Just saying inwardly something like: it doesn't matter, it is not real, no big deal! And come back to the task at hand.
