Expectations and patience (1)

For any experience that appears, check to see whether you have a reaction. Are you interested in being mindful? Are you interested in practicing? Why are you aware? Your practice should be simple and natural, with no expectation. You are not trying to gain something. You are trying to be aware in the present moment. If your expectations are high, the mind will not have any interest. It can’t be satisfied with what it already has. The mind becomes bored or disinterested.
