When the mind is quiet, notice the quiet state of mind

| Spirit Rock Retreat 2015 - Q&A Group B Session 4 (33:14-34:06)

The quietness is a state of mind – if we’re not able to see the quietness objectively as a state of mind, we can be in the quietness, and then the attachment, or the wallowing, the indulging, or the feeling good in the quietness, all these can start and then, we can just drift, and the awareness will not be so alert and sharp anymore.

So, this ability to objectify the quiet state of mind is important because the moment you know it’s an object, something which you’re knowing, then you also know the awareness already.
