Buddhism Meditation: The Weather Systems of the Mind       
Jean Sloan
In the Buddhist tradition of meditation known as Vipassana or Insight Meditation, we don't try to eliminate our thoughts; instead, we learn to observe the mind's activity very closely. It can be like watching for patterns in the weather. With practice, we can learn to view our patterns with interest and curriosity, even in times of "stormy weather." Will you recognize your "weather pattern"?
