Additional Notes:

  • If you are noting multiple things at once, as can happen in the one breath variation, it could be noted as such: "Seeing and thinking are like this." The singular, "is like this" becomes the plural, "are like this."

Practice Quote:

"Awareness is your refuge: Awareness of the changingness of feelings, of attitudes, of moods, of material change and emotional change: Stay with that, because it’s a refuge that is indestructible. It’s not something that changes. It’s a refuge you can trust in. This refuge is not something that you create. It’s not a creation. It’s not an ideal. It’s very practical and very simple, but easily overlooked or not noticed. When you’re mindful, you're beginning to notice, it’s like this."
