    What is it?

    This one! It has an answer :) I've begun meditation and I've been instructed to allow the stream of thought to pass without becoming involved it. The mind has an infinite capacity to create thoughts, I was told. It soon occurred to me that, though the mind streams with thoughts, I was not to...

    The master approached the student and asked, 'What is the mind?' The student said, 'That which is quieted.' The master, then, asked, 'And what is it that quiets this?'

    Is SPAM getting worse?
