The problem is whenever we see the mind, wrong view is already there.
Wrong view is very strong – when we see the mind, we think ‘It’s my mind.’ Because we identify with the mind, every time you notice the depressed or unpleasant mind, we get more depressed.
If you can be aware of your mind state again and again, slowly, you’ll understand that the mind is not personal. The mind is also nature; it has its own cause and effect process.
If you know how to be aware of the mind, then this understanding will come.
That’s why right view is very important when we watch the mind because wrong view is already there.
