i think that the interesting thing about meditator's is they start to develop a witness consciousness. That is they make a conscious effort to be aware of their own reactions and become aware of how the mind has captured the soul and holds us victim of the wondering thought processes. We do not get upset by this process. Because it adds yet one more problem. We just watch what it is doing and gently lead it back to the breath and meditation. On the other hand, those who have no conception of what lies behind the mind and thought processes when there is stillness are puppets of their own thought processes. The mind and thoughts rule their lives. There is much more to us then what we think and feel. It only takes one moment in complete stillness to recognize that we are much greater than we can imagine with our thoughts.

We are more than animals. We have the ability to reason and discriminate. This is our birthright in this human dimension. Let us not be captives of the mind on a caravan to the abyss.

'this gross physical world... so easy for things to materialize, condense, and so challenging to knot upon the condensations... as they are not so readily dissipated with the same mentality (counsciousness) from which they arrived...' ~Nomaste2all

i remember Brother Ishtananda illustration of the story of  under water observing. We are at peace being one with the water. Then a fish goes by and we think; 'what a nice fish'  Suddenly our attention draws the fish in closer and we observe its fins and texture etc. Before we know it the fish is right in our face.

We are much like this with our thoughts and emotions. We think something about what we observe and finally the thoughts we think draw in the object of our attentions. We suddenly realize we have created a knot in our consciousness. We are irresistibly drawn to the objects of our thought patterns. Our desires lead us to a challenge in our peaceful witnessing consciousness. Because of the thought condensations we experience an interruption in our free flowing enlightened consciousness. We become drawn into a space, a time a place. We become drawn onto a drama; A play. We loose our higher conscious faculties and functions and think we are now involved in the play. We cannot distinguish truth from the the play that we have become a part of. We have lost are witnessing consciousness and now think that we are actually a member of this play and that we have assumed a role that is real. We are like a actor/actress in a film that thinks he/she is really the role being played. We forget that the director has only assigned us a part in the witnessing drama.
